I am a practising clinician who works across medicine, science and engineering. I have a visiting scholar post at Harvard University, where I am working on microfluidic applications for clinical sensing. I am keen to explore, further, how cells and organs on chips, can both recapitulate, more closely, human pathophysiology, and how this can be used to improve healthcare delivery (prevention, treatment, and prognosis).
