Biotech Pioneer Daniel Kraft To Discuss ‘Organs On A Chip’ At Drug Information Association Annual Meeting
Published: Jun 12, 2014
In an era in which clinical studies take years to complete and testing a single drug can cost millions, technology that once seemed far-fetched — growing models of human organs on microchip — is making remarkable strides.
Creating models of human organs on microchips can save the industry time and money and reduce the need for testing on animals and even patients themselves. Physician, scientist and inventor Daniel Kraft will join Keith Murphy, chairman and CEO of Organovo, and Christopher C.W. Hughes, professor and chairman of molecular biology and biochemistry for the University of California, Irvine, at the DIA 2014 50th Annual Meeting June 15–19 at the San Diego Convention Center to discuss the remarkable progress in research that could transform the science of health care.
