    Bone Marrow Microenvironment on a chip for culture of functional hematopoietic stem cells

    Can organ on a chip platforms be used to culture and maintain functional hematopoietic stem cells and progenitor cells (HSPC)? This is a recent paper from Sharipol et al. from the University of Rochester, culturing important components of murine bone marrow microenvironment (BMME) in an organ on a chip....

    Perfusion and control of microbiome in lumen of intestinal organoids

    Intestinal organoids have found application in modeling intestinal function and infection, but is it feasible to replicate gastrointestinal motility and microbiome stability with organoids? One of the limitations is to access their lumens and modify their contents. A challenge that Ginga et al. at the Georgia Institute of Technology...

    Intestine-liver interaction affects hepatocyte function in multi-organ chip

    Everyone can pipette conditioned media of an intestinal cell culture into a hepatocyte model to study intestine–liver interaction. But what if you could use the same cell models and not only to make this process automatic (save money), but also to control the cross-talk (more flexibility)? Enjoy this paper...

    Flow and vascularization of kidney organoids on a chip

    A recent paper by Kim and Chung groups from the Catholic University of Korea culturing vascularized organoids in a kidney on a chip platform and studying the role of shear stress on the formation and nephrotoxicity of the organoids. The authors cultured organoids in a static culture and injected...

    Fibrosis and Microvasculature on a chip

    A beautiful paper from Hasse lab at EMBL Barcelona modelling fibrosis in the lung and heart to study the implications of fibrosis on microvasculature. They used a macro-scale side-by-side channel chip, previously developed in the lab of Roger Kamm. The authors developed this vasculature on a chip to assess...

    Glomerulus on a chip from iPSC-derived cells: A validation study

    This recently published paper from Musah lab at Duke university is a beautiful validation of using kidney on a chip to model glomerular filtration. This tissue chip was lined by epithelial and endothelial cells to mimic the blood filtration barrier and selective molecular filtration function of the kidney. Using...
