Scientists at the University of Minnesota have created what's being called the "Holy Grail" of medical research.
Researchers started with the dead heart of a rat. Using a detergent, scientists washed away the rat's cells. All that was left was a gelatin like framework. Scientists took the framework and injected heart cells from newborn rats back into it. Within a week, the heart was beating and pumping once again. While a rat heart can't help humans, doctors say a pig heart can.
