  • Keynote address: Biologically inspired engineering to advance healthcare: Creating human “organs-on-chips” for disease modeling, drug development and personalized medicine

Donald Ingber, Founding Director of the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University

Professor Ingber is a pioneer in the field of biologically inspired engineering. He currently leads scientific and engineering teams that cross a broad range of disciplines to develop breakthrough bioinspired technologies to advance healthcare and to improve sustainability. His work has led to major advances in mechanobiology, cell structure, tumor angiogenesis, tissue engineering, systems biology, nanobiotechnology and translational medicine. Through his work, Ingber also has helped to break down boundaries between science, art and design.

One of his innovations, Human Organs-on-Chips lined by living human cells, are being used to replace animal testing for drug development and personalized medicine. Ingber’s Organ Chip technology was named one of the Top 10 Emerging Technologies by the World Economic Forum and Design of the Year by the London Design Museum. It was also acquired by the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City for its permanent design collection.
