    The Microphysiological Systems Network exists for students studying and/or are interested in learning about microphysiological systems (MPS) such as organ models, tissue chips, microfluidic systems. Our mission is to foster a community that supports the intellectual and professional development of graduate student trainees in this highly interdisciplinary and rapidly evolving field.

    On a monthly basis, MPS Network members meet to discuss research challenges, provide peer-to-peer troubleshooting/support, and share impactful professional development opportunities. Our membership includes students, technicians, post-doctoral fellows, and faculty from a litany of different departments including Biomedical Engineering, Pathology, Dermatology, Microbiology, Immunology, Material Science, Data Science, and more.

    Anybody who is interested in learning about microphysiological systems is encouraged to join MPS Network, regardless of experience or expertise. Sign up for MPS Network and find our meeting schedule on our CCC page here, or by using this Google Form. We also have a LinkedIn Group page, and you can email Kevin Ling with questions.
