Why switching from conventional models to Organs on Chips?
Whereas 2D culture models are able to provide large amounts of relatively inexpensive data, this type of model weakly represent the complex pathophysiology in patients. In addition, they often require computational modeling and systems biology approaches to predict in vivo drug responses.
