Dongeun Huh's Biography



Dongeun Huh, Wilf Family Term Assistant Professor, Department of Bioengineeering, University Of Pennsylvania

Huh's laboratory aims to develop innovative bioengineering tools and technologies using biologically inspired design principles and micro/nanoengineering approaches to improve human health and promote environmental sustainability. Huh's research focuses primarily on developing i) microengineered biomimetic models of human organs (organs-on-chips), ii) self-assembled tissue/organ scaffolds, iii) cell-based self-regulating "smart" biomedical devices, and iv) efficient biomimetic transport systems. Huh explores the use of these bioinspired engineering systems for a variety of biomedical, pharmaceutical, and environmental applications.

Microengineered Physiological Biomimicry: Human Organ-on-Chips

Add to Calendar ▼SELECTBIOenquiries@selectbiosciences.com

Human organs are complex living systems in which specialized cells and tissues are assembled in various patterns to carry out integrated functions essential to the survival of the entire organism.  A paucity of predictive models that recapitulate the complexity of human organs and physiological systems poses major technical challenges in virtually all areas of life science and technology.  This talk will present interdisciplinary research efforts to develop microengineered biomimetic models that reconstitute complex structure, dynamic microenvironment, and physiological function of living human organs.  Specifically, I will talk about i) bioinspired microsystems that mimic the structural and functional complexity of the living human lung in health and disease, ii) an organ-on-chip microdevice that emulates the ocular surface of the human eye, and iii) microengineered physiological models of human reproductive organs.
