Alveoli on a Chip to Reveal Airflow Characteristics in Disease and Drug Delivery

Researchers at the Harbin Institute of Technology in China have developed a microfluidic-style chip that models the alveoli present in our airways. The tiny air sacs in our lungs are crucial for gas exchange, but they can be difficult to study and model. A better understanding of airflow patterns in these structures could be very … Continue reading Alveoli on a Chip to Reveal Airflow Characteristics in Disease and Drug Delivery
