Presented in collaboration with Be The Match BioTherapies®
Microphysiological systems, also often referred to as “organ-on-a-chip," are two- or three-dimensional constructs using human cells designed to model the spatial, chemical, structural, and physiological elements of in vivo cellular environments. This is currently one of the hottest research areas in the development of translational applications. Faculty in this session will explore various applications including drug screening and toxicology, tumor models for cancer diagnosis, and models for human development and diseases.
Discuss the basics of organ-on-a-chip-based microphysiological systems.
Review the benefits and limitations of using this approach.
Review regulatory and commercialization considerations in product development.
