Traditional farming requires a significant amount of water and land. In aeroponics farming, no growing media is used, so the resources that go into producing food are minimized. Moreover, aeroponics requires even fewer resources than hydroponics since the nutrient absorption rate is higher, as root networks tend to be more complex.
Tissue chips are engineered microchips that contain living human cells that replicate organ-level functions. Researchers can use them to predict whether a candidate drug, vaccine or biologic agent is safe or toxic in humans in a faster and more effective way than current methods.
