We bring biological insights to life

Since the 1990s, our scientific team has led the effort to characterize personal biology with body-on-a-chip systems. We deliver cutting-edge insights in drug safety, disease modeling, and personalized medicine, all at a fraction of the typical cost. Our work has spanned the fields of nano science, computational modeling, biomedical engineering, physiology, cell biology and surface chemistry, synthesizing interdisciplinary discoveries to create a platform that is truly one of a kind.

Dr. Hickman and Dr. Shuler of Cornell Awarded 2015 Lush Prize

Body-on-chip technology developed by UCF and Cornell University scientists has been awarded a major international prize for its capability to test pharmaceuticals without using animal subjects. This innovative technology, also known as Human-on-a-Chip, was recently awarded the 2015 Lush Prize for Science over 11 finalists from Japan, Switzerland, Germany, South Korea, Australia, the U.K. and the U.S.


Hickman laboratory to be featured by PBS affiliate

The Hickman lab is currently collaborating with Stephanie Rice and the UCF Nicholson School of Communication to produce a documentary piece to air on PBS. The documentary will serve to highlight the cutting edge research currently underway at the Hybrid Systems Lab and the implications this research will have on drug development in the near future.
