One way to improve drug discovery and development is to work with more accurate models of human biology and human disease. Organ-on-a-chip technology that provides three-dimensional cell models in conventional microfluidic plates is helping to do that. Mimetas is one company that’s delivering this technology to the hands of researchers today. We spoke to Jos Joore, co-founder and CEO of Mimetas about the technology, how its changing drug development, and whether organ-on-a-chip technology may one day find its way into the clinic.
