Endothelial cells in artery-on-a-chip

Endothelial cells in artery-on-a-chip

Endothelial cells seen in a microvessel mimicking chip. Researchers will develop a similar artery-on-a-chip, which researchers in Tony Kim's lab at Georgia Tech will use to study the effects of engineered HDL and inflammatory protein in atherosclerosis. They hope to gain insights into which "good cholesterol" treatments have failed in atherosclerosis, and will look for HDL cocktails that are more effective. Credit: Georgia Tech / Tony Kim lab
