QM+Emulate Organs-on-Chips Centre

The Queen Mary+Emulate Organs-on-Chips Centre is a centre of excellence in organ-on-a-chip technology based at Queen Mary University of London. The Centre is leading development and use of organ-chip models using the Emulate platform. Our vision is to facilitate the development and use of organ-chip models for therapeutic innovation and fundamental discovery science.

The Centre provides access to Emulate’s Organs-on-Chips platform to enable researchers to use existing supported organ-chip models or develop models of their design. The Emulate platform is ideal for fundamental research or for use as part of a drug discovery pipeline. Expert staff are on hand to support with training and use of the platform. Models within the Centre include: Liver, Kidney, Intestine, Airway and Alveolar, Synovium, Cartilage, Tendon, Bone, Bladder, Artery, Blood Brain Barrier, Breast Cancer Bone Metastasis and Ovarian Cancer Metastasis.

For academics, the Centre provides opportunities for collaboration and links to Emulate for support on grant applications, commercialisation and translational impact. For industry, we are open to collaboration and can also provide contract testing and bespoke CPD training in organ-chip technology.
