Scientists Built Blood-Brain Barrier On-a-Chip to Help Develop Neuro Drugs, Understand Brain Diseases

At Vanderbilt University researchers have developed a mimic of the blood-brain barrier in the form of a microfluidic device. To show a proof-of-concept of this “organ-on-chip” technology, the team studied how inflammation affects the blood-brain barrier continuously for an extended period of time, while previous approaches have only provided discrete snapshots of the process. The … Continue reading Scientists Built Blood-Brain Barrier On-a-Chip to Help Develop Neuro Drugs, Understand Brain Diseases
