Organs-on-chips reveal breathing’s critical role in lung cancer development

One of the biggest challenges facing cancer researchers — and lots of other medical researchers, in fact — is that experimental models cannot perfectly replicate human diseases in the laboratory. That’s why human Organs-on-Chips, small devices that mimic human organ environments in an affordable and lifelike manner, have quickly been taken up into use by...

Who We are

The mission of the Technology and Innovation Development Office (TIDO) to maximize the impact of Boston Children’s innovations on patient health while enhancing the research endeavor.

News and Events

TIDO is proud to announce the release of our new Inventor’s Guide. The booklet details the commercialization process at Boston Children’s, how to work with TIDO to give your invention the best possibility for success, and answers to frequently asked questions we encounter.

The new IP Policy allows for researchers to independently generate and complete certain outbound academic MTAs if specific criteria are met. In addition, we have implemented a new form for initiating inbound MTAs. Please click the link above for instructions and to download the forms.
