Organs-On-Chips are devices that mimic the structure and function of human organs. These microscale devices are constructed using versatile materials and human cells that are assembled into living, functional, engineered. Organs-On-Chips can be used to study human, and even patient specific physiological responses, and to test the safety and efficacy of drugs. They provide potential replacements for animal studies, as preclinical trials, and hold the potential to transform our way of studying human biology and developing new therapies.
While we are working on various tissue models, our lab is specialized in building Heart/Muscle-on-chip models with embedded sensors to monitor tissues function.
