Organ-Chips at DARPA’s 60th Anniversary Symposium

In 2012, DARPA began funding a program at Harvard’s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering to develop Organs-on-Chips technology. The agency believed that this innovation held the potential to play a role in national security readiness by facilitating the rapid development of treatments for biological, chemical, and nuclear threats, either natural or man made.
