Facing the Future of Microphysiological Modeling

Three Michigan State University researchers from the Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) have won a prestigious award from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Assistant BME Professors Brian Johnson and Sudin Bhattacharya and BME graduate student Jacob Reynolds will advance the microphysiological model of orofacial development to better understand and prevent birth defects. The model studies normal and abnormal development, such as clefting.

The NIH sought innovative ideas through the Complement-ARIE Challenge Prize. Offering $1 million in research funding, diverse teams were asked to conduct basic research, uncover disease mechanisms, and translate knowledge into products and practice.

View the list of winning solutions on the Complement-ARIE website.
