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.
They 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.
