It will delivered by Dr. Donald Ingber, Foundation Director of the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University. The Wyss institute studies nature’s design principles to develop bioinspired materials and devices as engineering solutions for healthcare, energy, architecture, robotics, and manufacturing. Dr. Ingber will summarize new developments from the institute and highlight his team’s recent advances made in the engineering of microfluidic “Organs-on-Chips”, microchips lined by living human cells created with microfabrication techniques that recapitulate organ-level structure and functions as a way to replace animal testing for drug development and mechanistic discovery.
