You’ve heard of the Automotive X Prize and the Lunar X Prize… Well get ready for the NewOrgan Prize.

The NewOrgan Prize will be given for successfully constructing a whole new organ – heart, kidney, lung, pancreas or liver – from a patient’s own cells. The organ must be transplanted and have functioned properly for two years in order for the award to be granted. The dollar amount of the prize will grow with donations from the general public.
