Propria was founded in 2018 with the goal of making human engineered heart tissue (hEHT) more powerful and accessible to scientists. Propria's approach is based on technology licensed from the laboratory of co-founder Dr. Stuart Campbell, Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Yale University.
With colleagues at Yale, Dr. Campbell developed a new method of generating exceptionally thin and functionally mature cardiac tissue constructs ideal for biomechanical study. Propria engineers have refined this technique into a system with unprecedented quality, accuracy and reproducibility. We are cardiac muscle physiologists with an extraordinary commitment to understanding and recapitulating muscle function. This has culminated in a system that produces incredibly rich yet simple-to-digest datasets which enable you to see the full contractile profile of human tissues.
