Organ-on-chip models: new opportunities for biomedical research

Written by Future Science OA

In this Editorial, Alexander Mosig, from Jena University Hospital (Germany) looks at the possibilities organs-on-chips hold for biomedicine. With our rapidly-evolving knowledge in regenerative medicine, and our increasing technological capabilities, organ-on-a-chip research is coming to the fore as an interesting strategy to improve both translation of research into humans and understanding of organ physiology. A new Editorial from Future Science OA provides a concise overview of the possibilities currently available with organ-on-chip technology, and looks to its future potential uses. Can it help reduce or even replace our reliability on animal models, and improve our ability to transfer data to...
