As a senior scientist in one of the world's largest CROs, I have a high interest in the next generation testing of substances for regulation packages. Organ on a chip is an exciting area of science that brings together many disciplines to achieve a product that is vastly greater than the sum of the parts and the direct outcomes are going to have a huge impact on a substance's route to market. Being a part of the technology's journey is important for international acceptance and advancing its utility.
