Researchers design placenta-on-a-chip to better understand pregnancy

18 junio 2015

Researchers have developed a ‘placenta-on-a-chip’ to study the inner workings of the human placenta and its role in pregnancy. The device was designed to imitate, on a micro-level, the structure and function of the placenta and model the transfer of nutrients from mother to fetus. This prototype is one of the latest in a series of organ-on-a-chip technologies developed to accelerate biomedical advances.
