In collaboration with biological, biomedical, and clinical groups, we apply our microsystems to studying and understanding the behavior of cells, tissues, and organs. This work is aimed at learning about health and disease, and eventually developing novel therapies and medicines. Specifically, we develop organs on chips as in-vitro disease models focusing on brain and cancer, and we study mechanical properties of single cells.
