Harvard scientists have developed an instrument that smokes cigarettes in the same way a human does, ...

Over the last few years, scientists have been able to recreate accurate models of human organs by embedding living tissue onto chips, allowing them to study the effects of drugs and diseases without testing on animals or humans. Versions of these organs-on-chips have so far been developed to mimic the heart, lungs, intestines and placenta. Now a team at Harvard has designed a device that smokes cigarettes and sends the smoke through a human lung small airway-on-a-chip, to examine just how the habit damages health.
