338 Cells, Organs, and Labs on a Chip

Tuesday, November 15, 2016: 12:30 PM - 3:00 PM
Continental 9 (Hilton San Francisco Union Square)
Description:
This session will include abstracts covering the development of chip-based technologies that model cell, tissue, and organ function with minimalist and microscale approaches. This approach could have applications on drug development, augmenting clinical and pre-clinical studies, with an eye toward recreating or partially capturing human physiology. Chip technologies can include microfluidics, cells and biomaterials, dynamic extracellular signals, and perhaps even multiple tissues/organs linked together toward whole-body integration.
