Heart-on-a-chip: a new device for biomedical applications?



Heart diseases are one the leading causes of mortality in the world. Therefore, understanding heart diseases and developing new therapeutic techniques has become a major challenge for medicine. In this aim, a new method for modeling and studying cardiac tissues in vitro has emerged: the design of a heart-on-a-chip, a biomimetic system that can reproduce the microenvironment of the heart. This video describes the overall structure of the heart-on-a-chip device and presents its potential applications in diseases modeling and drug screening. Watch Sara Medoukali’s video to learn more.
