We’ve written about organ on a chip concept before. We put a bet on this technology as a future game changer in toxicology, drug screen and replacement of animals in preclinical testing. Today, I’d like to share a talk by Geraldine Hamilton, where she introduced the concept of “human on a chip”. What if we connect each organ-on-chip in a system, where each chip represent an organ and tubes between them represent blood vessels? Media with cells will mimic a blood. I find this fascinating!
