Why Organ-Chips are Better at Modeling Human Diseases than Animal Testing

From Center for Contemporary Sciences CCS

More sophisticated, ambitious and human-relevant ways to help Humans rather than torturing Animals.

Center for Contemporary Sciences

When it comes to modeling human diseases, MPS are exciting new frontiers.

These advanced research models are made possible by the convergence of many disciplines such as biophysics, regenerative medicine, electrical engineering and materials science. Using these systems, the scientific discovery process from the development of new medicines to environmental health and safety testing can be approached in more sophisticated, ambitious and human-relevant ways.
