Human Microphysiology Systems for liver disease modeling: Exploring and developing layered glass/plastic chips with vascular and hepatic components which is also integrated with pH and oxygen sensor. The ultimate goal of this project is to culture human hepatocytes and all the supporting non-parenchymal cells (either primary or iPSCs-derived) on a bio-printed ECM layers to mimic the composition, structure and function of the native live.
