New publication on Islet-on-a-Chip platform!

Our collaborative work with Dr. Ashu Agarwal’s and Dr. Buchwald’s team at the University of Miami was recently published in the journal Lab on a Chip. This work, led by Dr. Agarwal’s postdoctoral fellow Dr. Lenguito, highlights the engineering of fluidic platforms for islet interrogation and is the first step in our research in engineering optimal culture devices for islets and beta cells that permit ease of dynamic monitoring and assessment. The article was also featured on the cover. Congratulations to the entire team!
