Team BioCHIPS (Biologically Creating Human systems Integrated with Programmed Sensors) is a four-year, interdisciplinary, undergraduate research team at the University of Maryland, College Park. The team is comprised of 13 members who are all a part of the 2018 cohort and are studying various majors. The research purpose of the team is to integrate sensors onto organ-on-a-chip systems (more specifically the gut-on-a-chip) to be more accurate, efficient, and cheap in pharmaceutical testing. This type of technology could then potentially replace animal and human experimental models.
