Human-coronary-artery-on-a-chip cell culture

Human-coronary-artery-on-a-chip cell culture

The new research will include the development of a human-coronary-artery-on-a-chip, a microfluidic chip cultured with human arterial cells. Shown here is a similar microvessel mimicking chip. The new chips will be used to test the effectiveness of engineered high-density lipoproteins, or good cholesterol, in fighting atherosclerosis. Credit: Georgia Tech / Tony Kim lab
