Realheart Chairman Göran Hellers has died

Göran Hellers, Chairman of the Board of Realheart, has passed away during the weekend following a sudden illness. The board will appoint one of the current board members as acting chairman.

''Our thoughts are with Göran's family at this time, and we are all extremely sad to lose a good friend and such an experienced and knowledgeable member of our Board. Göran Hellers has contributed enormously to the development of our artificial heart and it pains me that he will not be able to see it become a reality in just a few years' time," said Ina Laura Perkins, CEO of Realheart.
