Combining microfabrication techniques with modern tissue engineering, lung-on-a-chip offers a n ew in vitro approach to drug screening by mimicking the complicated mechanical and biochemical behaviours of a human lung. The goal of lung-on-a-chip is to replace animal testing and bring new therapies to patients faster and at lower cost. Lung on the chip won the Design of the Year 2015.
