Organ chip
March 03, 2020
Researchers from the Universities of Harvard and Tel Aviv have succeeded in linking up to 10 "organs-on-a-chip" via an analog of human vasculature. The invention allows for in vitro testing of drug toxicity and action, taking us one step closer to automated clinical trials and the development of personalized drugs. Chipping away at trial duration...
