Lonestar Heart

Privately-held LoneStar Heart, Inc. was founded in June 2010 to develop a cluster of novel technologies and research projects aimed at transforming the treatment of Advanced Heart Failure, one of the most challenging, widespread, and expensive medical conditions affecting societies with ageing populations. From inception, the Company's focus was on understanding the full spectrum of biological, mechanical, and medical events that contribute to the evolution of heart failure in order to identify better mechanisms to prevent, stop, and reverse the disorder. Its scientific founders included James T. Willerson, MD, president and medical director of the Texas Heart Institute, and Eric N. Olson, Ph.D., Chairman of the Department of Molecular Biology at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center who is one of the world's leading experts in developmental biology of the heart.
