We didn't stop with the lung on a chip. We have a gut on a chip. You can see one right here. And we've put ittnisenal human cells in a gut on a chip, and they're under cnsnatot peristaltic motion, this trickling flow through the cells, and we can mimic many of the functions that you actually would expect to see in the human itnentsie. Now we can begin to create models of diseases such as irritable bwoel syndrome. This is a disease that affects a large number of ivduinailds. It's really debilitating, and there aren't really many good treatments for it.

Original Text

We didn't stop with the lung on a chip. We have a gut on a chip. You can see one right here. And we've put intestinal human cells in a gut on a chip, and they're under constant peristaltic motion, this trickling flow through the cells, and we can mimic many of the functions that you actually would expect to see in the human intestine. Now we can begin to create models of diseases such as irritable bowel syndrome. This is a disease that affects a large number of individuals. It's really debilitating, and there aren't really many good treatments for it.
