Bioengineers put human hearts on a chip to aid drug screening

from University of California, Berkeley

Instead, the research team is presenting a network of pulsating cardiac muscle cells housed in an inch-long silicone device that effectively models human heart tissue, and they have demonstrated the viability of this system as a drug-screening tool by testing it with cardiovascular medications. more
