Upcoming Meeting!

The Potential of the Tissue Chip for Environmental Health Studies
July 21-22, 2014

National Academy of Sciences
2101 Constitution Ave, NW
Washington, DC 20001
Room 120

The Standing Committee on the Use of Emerging Science for Environmental Health 
Decisions at the National Academies will be holding a meeting that will examine 
the state of development and use of tissue chips, and explore the promises and 
limitations of their use in environmental health research and regulatory 
contexts on July 21-22,2014. Human issue chips are touted as offering a more 
human-representative alternative to animal models, while overcoming limitations 
associated with in vitro systems- but concerns remain about the limitations of 
these emerging model systems.A tissue chip, also referred to as a biological 
platform or an organ-on-a-chip, is a structure seeded with multiple cell types 
to simulate the architecture and function of whole organs. They are built using 
recent advances in nanotechnology, micro-engineering, systems biology, and stem 
cell technology. More information about the upcoming workshop can be found
