Many rare diseases cause chronic health problems or are even life-threatening. The impact on the quality of life of affected patients, of whom many are children, is significant. To date, a limited but increasing number of so-called orphan drugs (drugs for rare diseases) are reaching patients.

However, the majority of rare diseases are still without any effective treatment. The development of novel human systems for drug discovery therefore represents a major public health priority. Microfluidic technology-based “Organs-on-a-chip” represents a powerful tool for investigating rare disease mechanisms and testing new drug and treatment due to their ability to mimic tailored micro-environment architecture inspired by organ-level functions in vivo.

Spanish Network of Mechanobiology

The Spanish Network of Mechanobiology has been created with the aim of promoting and maintaining collaboration between research groups through the exchange of students, ideas, curiosity and, what is more, the exchange of methodologies and technologies.

Its objectives include the development of a software architecture based on microservices that provides a robust and secure support to the management of information and that allows to assess, through data mining techniques, the personalized evolution of the disease, and the implementation of a pilot where all the concepts and techniques developed can be validated in a real environment.
