The PhysioMimetics program combines tissue engineering, hardware
engineering, and translational system pharmacology technologies
to create a versatile microfluidic platform that can incorporate
up to 10 individual engineered human microphysiological organ
system modules in an interacting circuit. The modules are
designed to mimic the functions of specific organ systems
representing a broad spectrum of human tissues, including the
circulatory, endocrine, gastrointestinal, immune, integumentary,
musculoskeletal, nervous, reproductive, respiratory and urinary
