NOVA: Transplanting Hope Every ten minutes, another person in the U.S. is added to the waiting list for an organ transplant, joining more than 100,000 others. And a dire shortage of organs means every opportunity for a transplant has to count. With extraordinary access to patients and transplant teams, NOVA takes you inside the operating room to witness the emotional, high-stakes process of transferring organs from donors to recipients. Meet families navigating both sides of the transplant journey - and researchers pushing the boundaries of medicine in an effort to beat the odds. Their efforts to understand organ rejection, discover ways to keep organs alive outside the body, and even grow 'bio-artificial'' organs with stem cells, could save countless lives.
