      I guess this is mostly to Mike. I reckon he should name it the Cardiotron.

      Sorry rachel, this isn’t really the kind of work I do.

      Hey Rachel, I have been having a long think about this one. I made a device to save someone’s life I would have to call it the Recardiopair. A device to repair the damaged tissue after a heart attack.

      People in my lab are doing some fun things using stem cells and tiny meshes to make bandages. They go over the scar and try and regrow tissue to help repair the heart.
