Organ-on-a-Chip Mimics Heart's Biomechanical Properties

2017 28 Feb

Scientists at Vanderbilt University have created a 3D organ-on-a-chip that can mimic the heart's biomechanical properties. The device ("I-Wire Heart-on-a-Chip") and the results of initial experiments demonstrating that it faithfully reproduces the response of cardiac cells to two different drugs that affect heart function in humans are described in...
