A chip mimics the lung

Dear Sir or Madam,

Pulmonary fibrosis is a serious lung disease. It is very hard for scientists to research it in the laboratory, because it develops over a long time. Now, researchers have developed a tiny chip that is able to mimic lung tissue diseased with fibrosis.

Have a summery week,
