Microengineering organs-on-chip

Activity: Talk or presentationTalk or presentation at a workshop, seminar, course or other meeting


Born at the confluence of cell engineering and microfluidics, Organ-on-chip (OoC) technology aims at recapitulating in vivo (phato)physiology of human tissues and organs within small devices hosting cell co-cultures under dynamic and physiologically relevant microenvironments. Maintaining the latter requires perfusion, electro-mechanical stimuli and real-time sensing of local parameters. OoC devices represent therefore a growing field of application for microfabrication, microsystem integration and microrobotics, as I will show in my talk.
