Artificial cells on a chip for drug discovery

Lecture given by Dr Katherine Elvira

Dr Elvira is the Canada Research Chair in New Materials and Techniques for Health Applications, a Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research Scholar and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Victoria, Canada. Her group builds artificial cells and tissues from the bottom up using lab-on-a-chip (microfluidic) technologies. They aim to use these in vitro models to better understand how drugs behave in humans.
