Microphysiological systems for modeling and monitoring biological barriers

Short abstract:

Epithelia and endothelia delineate tissue compartments and control their environments by regulating the passage of ion and solutes. This barrier function is essential for the development and maintenance of multicellular organisms, and its dysfunction is associated with numerous human diseases. Recent advances in biomaterials and microfabrication technologies have evolved in vitro approaches for modeling biological barriers. Current microphysiological systems have become more efficient and reliable in mimicking the native cell microenvironment and are promising tools for basic research, toxicology, and disease modeling. In this talk, I will describe some microfluidic cell cultures developed in our group for modeling and monitoring biological barriers, including the renal epithelial tubule and the blood-retinal barrier.
