Chip-based Models Mimic Organs to Advance Understanding of Sickle Cell Disease

Researchers at Mississippi State University (MSU) are using tiny polymer chips to build models to help them better understand sickle cell disease.

Research on the models, which can also be used to study heart disease, might lead identification of molecules or factors that new treatments can target to lessen organ damage caused by the disease.
