Drones May Be a Crucial Chain in the Organ Transplant Network

Recently, a human kidney took its own way to the hospital - by way of drone.  The organ, destined for transplant in an ill 44 year old from Baltimore, found itself as part of a larger project organized by doctors, researchers, aviation experts, and engineers from the University of Maryland School of Medicine.  The project has also been supported by The Living Legacy Foundation of Maryland, a nonprofit that helps to enable organ and tissue donation and their needed transportation steps.
