Dan Huh's Biography

Dan Huh, Associate Professor of Bioengineering and Wilf Family Term Endowed Chair, University of Pennsylvania

Dr. Dan Huh is Associate Professor of Bioengineering and Wilf Family Term Endowed Chair at the University of Pennsylvania. He is a pioneer of “organ-on-a-chip” technology, and his research group at Penn focuses on developing microengineered models of human organs in health and disease for a wide variety of biomedical applications. Dr. Huh has won several honors and awards including the McPherson Distinguished Lectureship, the CRI Technology Impact Award, the John J. Ryan Medal from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, Design of the Year Award from London Design Museum, NIH Director’s New Innovator Award, Analytical Chemistry Young Innovator Award, TEDx Fellow, NC3Rs Annual Award, Lifetime Membership from the MOMA, SLAS Innovation Award from the Society for Lab Automation and Screening, Scientific Breakthrough of the Year from American Thoracic Society, Best Publication Award and Best Postdoctoral Award from the Society of Toxicology, Wyss Technology Development Fellowship from Harvard, Distinguished Achievement Award from Michigan, Widmer Award from microTAS, and Horace H. Rackham Predoctoral Fellowship.

Microengineered Physiological Biomimicry: Human Organs-on-Chips

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.
