Human Pancreas on a Chip Opens New Possibilities for Studying Disease

Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center

Scientists created human pancreas on a chip that allowed them to identify the possible cause of a frequent and deadly complication of cystic fibrosis (CF) called CF-Related Diabetes, or CFRD. It may be feasible to also use the small two-chambered device, which features bioengineered human pancreatic organoids to study the causes of non-CF-related conditions such as type 1 and 2 diabetes, according to researchers who report findings in Nature Communications.
