Title: High content imaging approaches to organs-on-chips: recent advancements and future prospects

Description: Organs-on-chips are miniaturized 3D microfluidic devices that reconstruct the multicellular and physical microenvironment of specific tissues or organs and can be used to model normal or disease level functions. In this SIG, we will discuss: (1) how organs-on-chips recapitulate physiological conditions and offer an alternative or parallel preclinical model to study biological mechanisms or assess drug efficacy/toxicity; (2) high content imaging assays that are being applied to organs-on-chips; and (3) current opportunities, challenges, and development areas for the future of HCS/HCA applications using organs-on-chips platforms.
