Studying blood flow in microchip vessels

Studying blood flow in microchip vessels

Using a polymer microchip, graduate student Meredith Fay and postdoctoral researcher David Myers fabricated model blood vessel systems that include artificial blood vessels with diameters as narrow as the smallest capillaries in the body. The systems were used to study the activity of white blood cells affected by two different types of drugs. (Credit: Rob Felt, Georgia Tech)
