Organ-Chips at DARPA’s 60th Anniversary Symposium

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.

Research Presented at EuroTox

Along with a number of our collaborators, we will be presenting new research conducted with our Organs-on-Chips technology at the 54th Congress of the European Societies of Toxicology (EuroTox) this week in Brussels. The theme of this year’s conference is “toxicology out of the box,” and will focus on innovative and forward-looking research that is being done in the field.
