In November 2010 the Texas Heart Institute contacted Cameron asking if they would participate with them from an engineering standpoint in the design and development of the next generation total artificial heart.  The doctors contacted Cameron based on the fact that they have significant expertise in the design of all kinds of pumps and compressors, plus the fact that Cameron is going to be around to support it.  Cameron agreed to take this on and we put together the engineering team that exists today.  The engineers work on this on a voluntary basis.
