Professor Martin Yarmush is ​a 2021/2022 Sackler Fellow of the Mortimer and Raymond Sackler Institute of Advanced Studies.



In this presentation, I will describe the development of novel cell culture systems and tissue analogues, many of which have been adopted by industry. I will then move up in scale to describe microfabricated dynamic tissue systems and hepatic assist devices that we have developed over the years. Finally, I will focus on whole organ studies which are directed towards addressing the organ shortage for transplantation.then handles the tasks of both finding the vessel and accurately guiding the attached needle toward the target vessel center.
