The Future Is Here: Practical Applications of Emerging Scientific Tools
Human Organs on Chips as Replacements for Animal Testing, the keynote address given by Donald E. Ingber, M.D., Ph.D., of the Wyss Institute at Harvard, kicked off the meeting which featured a dozen lectures and poster presentations on making toxicology a more human-relevant science.
