About Emulate, Inc.

Our Human Emulation System, which uses Organs-on-Chips technology, is being used by industry, government, and academia to understand how different diseases, medicines, chemicals and foods affect human health. The system offers researchers a new standard for predicting human response — with greater precision and control than today’s cell culture or animal-based experimental methods.  We are also leading a bold, new precision medicine initiative with our clinical partners. Named "Patient-on-a-Chip,"​ the program is developing personalized chips with patients'​ own cells. This initiative will help transform the way each of us understands our own bodies and manages our own health.

Research conducted using our Organ-Chips has been published in high-impact scientific journals, including Science and National Geographic. In addition, Organ-Chips have been acquired by the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York for their permanent collection, and have also been awarded Product Design of the Year 2015 by London’s Design Museum.   Our founding team pioneered the original Organs-on-Chips technology during their residency within the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University.
