Microphysiological Systems: Innovative tools for drug development and disease modeling (March 2018)

The drug development process is lengthy, expensive and has high attrition rates. To address these challenges, the NIH, in partnership with DARPA, FDA, and the pharmaceutical industry has invested in the NIH Microphysiological Systems ("tissue chips") program to develop alternative approaches that would enable early indications and potentially more reliable readouts of toxicity and efficacy. The goal of the program is to develop bio-engineered microdevices that represent functional units of major human organ systems.
