In collaboration with Dr. Anthony Hickey and the UNC Catalyst for Rare Disease, Elizabeth and Wen provide perspective on the use of microfluidic approaches to model vascular disease. Their work is a summary of recent engineering approaches and also serves to provide insight into current challenges and barriers to translation.
