The group at Brunel University London is developing new OOC systems using additive manufacturing techniques including free form fabrication, bioprinting and electrospinning to create OOC systems. The group is currently developing two systems; one investigating the female reproductive tract and the second developing a breast on a chip.

Within the OOC network we are looking for like minded collaborators with an interest in either of the two areas. We are particularly interested in host microbiome interactions.
