Organ-On-Chip

The concept of Organ-on-Chip deals with bio-mimicry of various human organs viz. lungs, gut, heart etc. into their on-chip analogues which will not only allows us to study the behaviour of various tissues under cyclic stress environments present in organs like lung and heart, but also to test the kinetics of various drugs and proliferation of infectious diseases under such environments. This is one of the most challenging fields in biotechnology since it not only involves designing intensive microfluidic networks similar to arteries and veins in the human body but also bio-printing of cells into a mechanically stable structure capable of developing into mature tissues
