This week we learned that we have officially been awarded a $3.3 million dollar grant to generate the world’s first spatially organized micro-physiological model of a human lymph node. This U01 award from the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) at the National Institutes of Heath provides 5 years of funding for this project.
We are delighted to work with a stellar team of researchers, including:
Jennifer Munson, PhD at Virginia Tech
John Luckey, MD, UVA Pathology
Tom Braciale, MD PhD, UVA Pathology
As new members of the NIH-sponsored Organ-on-chip Consortium, we are looking forward to bringing a lymph node to the burgeoning human-on-chip system!
