Mini Organs: Big Discoveries 

Novel organ-on-a-chip platforms drive disease research and precision medicine development. 

Organoids and organ-on-a-chip devices mimic the dynamic physiologies of human organs and tissues. By leveraging these cutting-edge techniques, researchers faithfully recreate the body’s in vivo complexities to gain insights into disease pathology and drug toxicity.  In this webinar, Xiling Shen and Milica Radisic will discuss creating patient-derived micro-organs and engineering vascularized vessels for disease modeling and drug screening. 

Topics to be covered

  • Generating thousands of micro-organospheres from patient tumors to assess tumor drug response in real time
  • Developing in vitro vasculature-on-a-chip platforms for SARS-CoV-2-induced myocarditis modeling 

Monday, July 10th, 2023 | 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM Eastern Time
This webinar will be available to view live and on demand.
