Donald E. Ingber, founding director of the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University and a member of the National Academy of Medicine, will present a seminar entitled “Biologically Inspired Engineering: From Human Organs-on-Chips to Programmable Nanotherapeutics” at 3:30 p.m on Monday, March 6 in the Storer Auditorium at the School of Business Administration.
His presentation will highlight the recent advances his team has made in engineering “organs-on-chips”—microfluidic devices lined with living human cells that are created with computer microchip manufacturing techniques that recapitulate organ-level structure and functions as a way to replace animal testing for drug development, mechanistic discovery, and personalized medicine.
This seminar is part of the College of Engineering Distinguished Speaker Series. For more information, call 305-284-2445 or email email@example.com.
