MANCHESTER—Long waiting lists are a drag, but when they’re for an organ transplant, they can also be lethal. Over 120,000 Americans are waiting for a donated organ, and the list gets longer all the time. Twenty-two of them die each day, and many of those lucky enough to make it perish from routine illnesses because their immune systems have been hobbled by drugs to prevent the rejection of the transplanted organ.
But inside a massive repurposed 19th-century mill complex in New Hampshire’s largest city, a world famous inventor has teamed up with some of the country’s leading scientists and biomedical engineering firms to wipe out that list once and for all.
