      Cosmos Magazine (December 11, 2023) How organ-on-a-chip technology is revolutionizing the way we study cardiovascular disease

      Associate Professor Sara Baratchi, head of mechanobiology and microfluidics laboratory at the Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute and RMIT University, and her team have developed a bioengineered model of a blood vessel and used it to identify a potential therapeutic target to slow vascular aging. A paper detailing their discovery has been published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces. The team’s microfluidic device can mimic both the stiffness of young and aged human aortas, and the blood flow patterns inside them.
