Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Tissue engineering is bringing together advances from stem cell biology, microfluidics, robotics, and 3-D cell culture to develop novel products for the drug development and toxicity testing sectors. The ability to create miniature tissue or even human organs-on-a-chip is valuable for a number of reasons.
