Lung-on-chip and BBB-on-chip models presented

The AKITA team has been all around the world presenting our work at conferences. Most notably we attended the LIVe2022 conference in Nice, France, the South Summit conference in Madrid, where Mimosa presented our microphysiological lung model. The microfluidic model showed intact barrier formation and replicates barrier leakage upon inflammatory agent exposure. Reach out to Mimosa to know more!
