Organs-On-Chips In Space - The Making of Dr Lucie Low Making A Scientist

    • Science

We made it all the way to the series finale!! And what an AMAZING episode this is!

This week, my guest is Dr. Lucie Low, Scientific Program Director of the Tissue Chips for Drug Screening Program at the National Institute of Health which encompasses programs of work such as the Tissue Chips for Disease Modelling and Tissue Chips in Space.

Organs-on-chips or tissue chips are some of the hottest tools in the biosciences right now. In this episode, find out what they are, how they have immense potential to deliver huge benefits for patients and to alleviate some of the ethical concerns of animal research by offering an alternative (and perhaps better) way of testing new drugs, cosmetics or even running clinical trials without causing any harm to animals or humans.

Lucie and I also discuss how organs-on-chips are being used in experiments carried out aboard the international space station, and some of the challenges associated with carrying out biological research in space.

We will also hear all about Lucie’s career path, how she made the decisions she did and hear her incredible advice for early career researchers.

I know I say this every time, but this really is a truly brilliant episode!
