Researchers at MIT have created a new model for organs-on-a-chip that could be a crucial step in developing treatments for inflammatory diseases and afflictions.

Organs-on-a-chip essentially consist of millions of cells formed on a platform so they replicate the functions of different organs. These types of devices can be instrumental in analysing and potentially creating new treatments for complex diseases.

Creating an organ-on-a-chip has helped the MIT research team to examine how the circulation of immune cells can affect inflammatory diseases. They have found that the immune system, especially T-cells, dramatically change physiological behaviour when it is connected to other organs.
