A brief review of the important events in Penn State heart device research.

Mechanical Engineering Landmark

In 1990, The Penn State Heart Assist Pump was named an International Historic Mechanical Engineering Landmark.

The brochure for that dedication is available on-line in Acrobat format. (If you do not have Acrobat, it may be downloaded from Adobe.)

25 Years of Penn State Heart Research

In 1995 a symposium, The Artificial Heart: Past, Present and Future was held to recognize the program and honor those involved. Particularly honored was Dr. William S. Pierce, M.D. for his contributions to the project.

A copy of the symposium program can be downloaded in Acrobat.
