Researchers in laboratories at FDA’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition will be testing revolutionary new technology that creates human organ systems in miniature on micro-engineered chips. Beginning with a liver-chip, FDA scientists will be evaluating the effectiveness of this technology to better understand the effects of medicines, disease-causing bacteria in foods, chemicals, and other potentially harmful materials on the human body.
