Creates artificial organs for transplants.

As of June 9, 2014, the United States had 122,949 people on transplant waiting lists, barely 15% of whom will receive an organ. Aside from donor rarity and the stress of waiting, transplant patients also face infection, incompatibility issues and costly immunosuppressant medication. To solve this problem, Transplants Without Donors supplies transplant organs with no need for human donation: they are created artificially from stem cells.
