What if the future of medicine is personalized treatment where drugs and treatments are designed just for you? In this talk at TEDxBoston, Dr. Geraldine Hamilton explains how she and her team at the Wyss Institute are designing micro-chips that act like miniature versions of human organs, allowing drug companies to safely test new drugs on humans, and even children. 

So far, her research has produced two different “organs on a chip,” as she calls them — a human gut and a human lung. Watch Dr. Hamilton explain why this is so important for medicine »
