Sangeeta Bhatia and micro-liver chips on NOVA

Last week Professor Sangeeta Bhatia was featured in a fantastic profile on NOVA’s scienceNOW. Bhatia is recognized as a pioneer in bioMEMS and directs the Laboratory for Multiscale Regenerative Technologies at MIT. Although Bhatia’s work explores a wide range of topics, she is most well-known for her development of micro-livers-on-a-chip. Primary liver cells are notoriously […]
