Bioprinting on-chip microphysiological models of humanized kidney tubulointerstitium

An EU funded research consortium developing three-dimensional (3D) in vitro human renal tubulointerstitium (TI) models with an unprecedented degree of mimicry and function towards native kidney. The primary focus of the project is the investigation of viral infection and nephrotoxicity applications, and to make the model applicable also to other kidney-related diseases.
