A microfluidic tissue model developed by Professor Roger Kamm finds that Alzheimer’s damage allows toxins to enter the brain, further harming neurons.
Professor Roger Kamm has developed a microfluidic chip containing the first 3-D human tissue model of the interface between motor neurons and muscle fibers. The chip could help researchers test ALS drugs.
MechE researchers across a diverse range of specialties are developing new and innovative ways to deepen our understanding of disease and unlock new therapies to treat it.
