Organ-Chips 101: Bridging the Gap Between Traditional Models and Human Biology

In the complex landscape of drug discovery and development, the need for more predictive, human-relevant models is paramount. Many researchers are turning to advanced in vitro models like Organ-Chips for deeper insights into disease mechanisms and more accurate assessments of drug safety and efficacy. However, for researchers unfamiliar with advanced cell culture, it can seem daunting to get started.

In this webinar, Luke Dimasi, Senior Director of Product Management at Emulate, provides an overview of microphysiological systems and explains how Organ-Chips integrate into the drug discovery and development process. Additionally, Gautam Mahajan, PhD, Emulate Principal Scientific Lead, presents data-driven case studies where Organ-Chips successfully provided researchers with human-relevant insights into inflammatory & infectious disease mechanisms as well as drug candidate safety and efficacy.

Whether you are new to Organ-on-a-Chip technology or looking to deepen your expertise, this webinar will equip you with the knowledge and insights needed to integrate this advanced technology into your research.
