Creating Biomedical Technologies to Improve Health

RESEARCH FUNDING

Tissue Chips

This program supports the development of tissue based in vitro tools for research, diagnostic, and therapeutic purposes.  Technology developments may include, but are not limited to:

  • Engineering of (human) tissues platforms to create new capabilities, such as to model diseases, screen for new drugs, and to develop diagnostics
  • Quantification and validation of tissue chips and engineered tissues
  • Devices to assess the function of engineered human tissues
  • High-throughput assays and methods to reduce the cost, time, and complexity of tissue engineering
  • Bioreactors to grow tissues and organs on a large scale

Development of tissue for implantation and regenerative medicine is supported by the NIBIB Tissue Engineering program.
