Abidemi Junaid received his B.S. in Biometrics from Zuyd University of Applied Sciences, M.S. in Biomolecular Sciences from VU University and Ph.D. in Systems Biomedicine and Pharmacology from Leiden University. His PhD work was centered around the development of high-throughput human microvessels-on-chips for studying microvascular destabilization, infectious diseases and metabolomics. He also worked on integrating mechanical fluid flow, biological and environmental sensing in organs-on-chips. Altogether, this enabled him to identify the impact of patient plasma on microvessels for clinical studies. As a Staff Scientist, he is working on advancing preclinical testing and modeling of the human immune system using organ-on-chip technology.
