LATTICE, a tissue-agnostic microfluidic device to model physiology and disease
Scientists at Northwestern have developed this new technology to study interactions between up to eight unique organ tissue cultures (cells from a human organ) for extended periods to replicate both healthy and diseased tissue states. This is a major advancement from current in vitro systems, which can only study two cell cultures at a time. The goal is to simulate what happens inside the body to analyze, for example, how obesity might affect a particular disease. It can also serve as an intermediate step between animal studies and clinical trials to test new drugs.
