Human Physiome on a Chip
Demonstration of platform that connects multiple 'organ' plates.
Demonstration of 'chip', showing dye traveling through plates.
Technician on laptop manipulating the movement of dye through plates. Movie on loop showing hardware. Poster with simple biology and application of hardware. Funding through DARPA.
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
