My research interests include the development of microfluidic devices that can be used to understand physiological/pathophysiological conditions of human organs and systems.My work aims at the creation of microfluidic tools for drug screening and toxicology studies by the in vitro recapitulation of human physiological barrier systems, such as the placental barrier and the blood brain barrier.
