ORGANS on CHIPS

I am very interested in the new technology, ORGANS-ON-CHIPS. This is a tissue culture system and synthesizes minimal functional units that recapitulate organ-level functions. In short, WE CAN CREATE DIFFERENT TYPES OF SMALL ORGANS ON A SMALL PLATE. We can test the efficacy of new drugs using this system. This can potentially eliminate animal experiments and phase 1a study, which can accelerate the drug development.

Thank you for reading this blog. I hope you have a wonderful day.
