ILAR Roundtable Workshop: Microphysiological Systems: Bridging Human and Animal Research
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, Institute for Laboratory Animal Research (ILAR) will present a Virtual Roundtable Workshop: Microphysiological Systems (MPS): Bridging Human and Animal Research on Tuesday, Jan 19, 2021, and Wednesday, Jan 20, 2021 (11:00 AM - 5:00 PM EST). MPS are in vitro platforms (such as tissues and organs on chips) that mimic the biochemical, electrical, and mechanical properties of organ or tissue function. These sessions will explore the use of MPS for a range of animal species and strains and for optimizing animal model selection where whole animal models are necessary.
