Huh Lab Debuts “Eye-on-a-Chip” at AAAS Meeting

By Patience on March 7, 2018

Biomemetic devices represent a promising technological advance in the way we research and test complex biological systems. Engineered technologies that imitate cells, organs and processes can provide a controlled, scientific platform as an alternative to living tissue. Mimicry by lab-developed models can give us key insights into how natural systems will respond to stimuli while […]
