Nowadays, we can use new technologies to build complex platforms for the study of human physiology and pathology. Microfluidics represents a novel approach to recreate human tissues and organs on a chip. In this talk Alessandra Dellaquila introduces what microfluidics is, how it works and why it is a powerful tool for the development of Organ-on-a-chip platforms.
Alessandra Dellaquila is a 3rd year PhD student currently working on the European project DeLIVER ( Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Grant Agreement No. 766181).
She is carrying her PhD at Elvesys Microfluidics Innovation Center in collaboration with Institut national de la santé et de la recherche médicale (INSERM).
