초록: Recent advances in biomedical technologies are mostly related to the convergence of biology with micro-engineering. Microfluidic biomimetic system represents a new avenue in a range of area in preclinical precision drug validation and new drug discovery. A patient’s own cells could be adapted with induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) techniques to develop biomimetic system which emulates individual organ-level function. It enables better understanding of the individual pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics properties of various medications leading personalized dosing strategy to minimize the adverse effects and reduce the cost of therapy, and provides personalized drug discovery opportunities. Here, I will discuss my recent research related to precision medicine including identification of functional peptide for efficient drug delivery, and target-based drug screening enabled by personalized BBB (blood-brain barrier)-on-a-chip, as well as the importance of biological point of view in realizing the full potential of this technology.
