Off to Austin for AAAS

I am honored to be giving a talk with some of our collaborators at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Austin, Texas, on February 17. The meeting is one of the world’s largest gatherings of scientists.

The symposium we’ve convened addresses the ways Organs-on-Chips technology is being used for drug development by pharmaceutical companies and for precision medicine by clinicians.

I will give a talk along with Dr. Robert Urban of our collaborator Johnson & Johnson and Dr. Clive Svendsen of Cedars-Sinai.

One of the pioneers in the field of Organs-on-Chips technology, Prof. Dongeun (Dan) Huh of the University of Pennsylvania, will moderate the panel, which is titled, “Emulating Human Biology: Organ-Chips for Drug Development and Personalized Medicine.”
