Special Issue on Organ-on-a-Chip

Published 05 February, 2021

Organ-on-a-chip refers to a microfluidic cell culture device that simulates tissue- and organ-level physiology. By recreating an in vivo-like, physiological-relevant microenvironment using cells and biomaterials, the technology of organ-on-a-chip has great potential to overcome the limitations of conventional 2D or 3D culture systems. Applications of organ-on-a-chip include, but are not limited to, studying organ/tissue physiology and regeneration, understanding disease etiology and facilitating drug development. This special issue aims to present recent research developments and applications.
