He has been working in the area of functional, in vitro systems for 25 years and is one of the pioneers in the field. He has developed the field of functional in vitro systems which endeavors to couple a cell’s natural electrical and/or mechanical function to a MEMS device in an effort to reduce reliance on biomarkers in cell based systems. These are fundamental to making an organ-on-a-chip system and is the foundation for Hesperos’ technology.
