Research

My part of the vascular engineering on chip (VESCEL) project is to develop a microfluidic platform for finding optimal conditions for hiPSC differentiation into cardiovascular cells. To achieve this the cells are encapsulated in microdroplets containing variable concentrations of growth factors. This approach will allow more conditions to be tested at higher throughput levels than possible with current standard methods.
