Human Gut-on-a-Chip offers hope for discovering new radio-protective drugs
Human Gut-on-a-Chip technology is being used to understand how exposure to radiation (through radiation therapy for cancer, exposure to cosmic rays in astronauts, or accidental exposure in a nuclear accident) impacts cells in the human gut and to test potential protective treatments to prevent damage caused by radiation exposure.
