"Human on a Chip" Technology
You've heard of "lab-on-a-chip" but what about "human-on-a-chip" technology. Cornell University scientists have created a microchip containing cells of human organ tissues they believe can substitute for using animals to test drugs. The "human-on-a-chip" mimics the body's physiology and is expected to identify drug dangers early in development, but it is not expected to replace all animal tests or extensive clinical trials, reports the Guardian. What's next "brain-on-a-chip"?
