The team published its findings Wednesday in JAMA Cardiology.

Researchers can put organs in a deep freeze. Scientists say they may have a way to bring them back

Researchers announced they had devised a technology that could rewarm larger pieces of tissue without major damage, paving the way for future studies that could demonstrate whether the method could be used to one day store organs for transplants.

The research, published in the journal Science Translational Medicine, relies on seeding the tissue with nanoparticles that, when exposed to a magnetic field, activate into tiny yet powerful heat generators.
