‘On Chip’ Blood-Brain Barrier Model Paves Way for Personalized Therapy, Study Suggests
Using stem cells, researchers have recreated the complexity of the blood-brain barrier (BBB) — a critical protective brain structure — in a chip roughly the size of an AA battery. This personalized BBB experimental model, which combines stem cell research with Emulate’s Organ-Chip technology, will allow scientists to better understand how the barrier works while also providing a novel way to investigate ... read more
