In this episode Drs. Peter Loskill and Christine Mummery join the podcast to talk about the intersection of stem cells, microphysiological systems and organs-on-a-chip technology in understanding disease, screening drugs and personalized medicine. Drs. Loskill and Mummery are guest editors of a special issue on this topic appearing now in Stem Cell Reports.
Peter Loskill, PhD W3-Professor for Organ-on-Chip Research at the Eberhard Karls University Tübingen and the Natural and Medical Sciences Institute as well as Vice-Chair of the European-Organ-on-Chip-Society (EUROoCS).
Christine Mummery, PhD, Professor of Developmental Biology at Leiden University Medical Center and heads the iPSC & organ on a chip facility at the LUMC. She is also the recent past president of the ISSCR.
Martin Pera, PhD, Editor-in-Chief, Stem Cell Reports and The Jackson Laboratory

About Stem Cell Reports
Stem Cell Reports is the Open Access journal of the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) for communicating basic discoveries in stem cell research, in addition to translational and clinical studies. Stem Cell Reports focuses on original research with conceptual or practical advances that are of broad interest to stem cell biologists and clinicians.
With nearly 4,000 members from more than 65 countries, the International Society for Stem Cell Research is the preeminent global, cross-disciplinary, science-based organization dedicated to stem cell research and its translation to the clinic. The ISSCR mission is to promote excellence in stem cell science and applications to human health.
