MTL Seminar Series DDS: “A Microfluidic System for Modeling Human Atherosclerosis and Pathophysiology”

Friday, December 08, 2017 at 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Allen & Haus Room, Allen & Haus Room (36-428/462) 50 Vassar St., Cambridge MA 02139

Discovering potent therapeutics for atherosclerosis requires emulating the natural cellular microenvironment along with relevant blood-flow profiles that regulate disease progression. This talk presents a microfluidic device that overcomes several limitations of current models. It applies programmable spatiotemporal blood flow signatures found in patients directly upon human cells, enabling novel studies on atherogenesis.
