The Polacheck laboratory is an interdisciplinary team of scientists and engineers who build microfluidic models of human tissues and organs-on-chip. Our organizing philosophy is to use engineering design and fabrication to understand how tissues are assembled and function in health and disease.


We are particularly interested in diseases in which misregulation of fluid transport contributes to pathogenesis, including inherited arterial and microvascular diseases, chronic kidney disease, and cancer. For more information, see Research and Publications
