Scientists Are Trading In Lab Mice for Hundreds of Mini-Brains on a Chip-our recent work,highlighted in Wired magazine!
February 11, 2017
Khademhosseini’s team created a series of integrated microfluidic chips connecting liver organoids and cancer cells. They pumped an anticancer drug through the system, tracking whether it killed the tumor cells and whether the liver cells could survive the toxic onslaught. In this way, they could optimize a drug dosage that maxed cancer-killing power, while keeping the liver out of harm’s way.
Modular Assembly of Single Cells 3D Synthetic Tissue
January 27, 2017
Congratulations to Jeroen Leijten and BIRC Director Ali Khademhosseini who developed a new method to create hydrogel building blocks with single cell resolution for modular tissue engineering. This modular bioink-based approach provides a great promise in clinically effective tissue engineering applications due to the high-throughput, biomimetic, and versatile nature of the process.
