On 30 October 2023, United Therapeutics announced the acquisition of Miromatrix Medical, a life sciences company specializing in the development of bioengineered human cell-based organs. 

This strategic acquisition aims to strengthen United Therapeutics' existing portfolio of organ manufacturing programs, including ex-vivo lung perfusion, xenotransplantation, 3-D bioprinting, and regenerative medicine approaches, in order to generate an abundant supply of transplantable organs that the body can tolerate. Under the terms of the agreement, United Therapeutics plans to purchase all the outstanding shares of Miromatrix. The proposed purchase price is $3.25 per share in cash upon closing, totaling around $91 million. Further, there will be an extra $1.75 per share in cash to be paid upon the successful attainment of a clinical development milestone associated with Miromatrix's mirokidney™, a fully implantable manufactured kidney product, expected to be achieved by December 31, 2025.
