In universities around the US, researchers are testing and cataloging data on tissue chips that could soon be used for toxicity and product safety assays.
This month, the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (a division of the US Department of Health & Human Services) awarded close to $6m in grants for research on tissue chips. The funding established Tissue Chip Testing Centers at Texas A&M University, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and at the University of Pittsburgh.
