JHU Team Develops Microfluidic Chip to Study Neural Growth, Brain Formation | GenomeWeb
Investigators from the Johns Hopkins University Whiting School of Engineering have developed a microfluidic lab on a chip that enables them to flow cocktails of specific chemicals around individual neurons.
According to the scientists, this assay could potentially help scientists better understand how neurons communicate with one another to form the brain, and possibly elucidate other cellular processes involving chemotaxis of shear-sensitive cells.
