Tissue Chips: Past and Present
Dr. Kristin Bircsak, MIMETAS

The Challenges and Future of Microphysiological Systems
Dr. Seila Selimovic, National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering

These seminars will focus on recent advances in the Tissue Chip field, an overview of regulatory challenges, as well as future scientific applications. Microphysiological systems (MPS), or Tissue Chips, are 3-D scaffolds composed of human tissues and cells designed to model the structure and function of human organs, such as the lung, liver, and heart. Tissues chip systems can closely mimic human function, in many ways more accurately than 2-D systems and animal models. Scientists have begun to apply these tools to gain insight into disease pathophysiology and accelerate the development of potential therapeutics.
