Organs on Chips: Microscale Models of Human Physiology
Originally Aired July 2, 2019
Organs on chips are bioengineered systems designed to capture the complexities of human physiology in a microscale device. Perhaps most successfully applied in drug development to predict efficacy and toxicity earlier in the pipeline, organs on chips are also versatile platforms for studying tissue development and disease pathogenesis.
Join us for a discussion with Y. Shrike Zhang (Harvard Medical School), Megan McCain (University of Southern California), and Donald Ingber (Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering), who will present the latest advances in fabrication, characterization, and integration of organ-on-chip devices.
