Organs-on-chips: breaking the in vitro impasse

Our latest hot review article is from Andries D. van der Meer and Albert van den Berg who review organs-on-chips, microengineered in vitro tissue models which may help us to overcome current limitations in generating realistic tissue models to understand human physiology and pathogenesis.

Simple versus realistic in vitro tissue modelsThey discuss organs-on-chip as platforms for engineered microenvironments, as well as taking a detailed look at the lung-on-a-chip, blood vessel-on-a-chip, liver-on-a-chip and the future of this exciting field.

The article is currently free to access for 4 weeks, so why not take a look:
