Media invitation: Pioneer of organ-on-a-chip technology to speak at Imperial College London
Date:5/17/2011

tegrated within tissues and organs during embryo formation, which is a process called "tensegrity". He will review his research into tensegrity and other findings that reveal how living cells and tissues change shape, move, grow, and self-heal. Understanding these underlying principles in more detail is enabling researchers to mimic biology so that they can develop technologies such as the organ-on-a-chip device.

Professor Ross Ethier, Head of the Department of Bioengineering at Imperial College London, says:

"Don Ingber's work represents the future of bioengineering. He is a pioneer who has helped us to understand how cells are designed. Now he is leading the way, using new microscopic fabrication techniques that incorporate human cells, to make devices to diagnose, understand and treat human disease. As we celebrate 20 years of bioengineering at the College, it is fitting to have such pioneer among us to discuss what the future holds in this exciting scientific field."

Professor Ingber has authored more than 300 publications and 50 patents and has received numerous distinctions including the Pritzer Award from the Biomedical Engineering Society, Lifetime Achievement Award from the Society of In Vitro Biology, the Rous-Whipple Award from the American Society for Investigative Pathology, the Department of Defence Breast Cancer Innovator Award, and election as a Fellow in the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering.
