(Massachusetts Institute of Technology) MIT biological engineers have created a multitissue model that lets them study the relationships between different organs and the immune system on a microfluidic chip seeded with human cells. With this ‘organs-on-a-chip’ model, they could explore the role of immune cells in ulcerative colitis and other inflammatory diseases.
