The first lung-on-a-chip platforms emerged almost 10 years ago, and significant progress has since been made in terms of both biological and engineering complexity. Here, we describe one of the most sophisticated lung-on-a-chip systems in terms of biological complexity [1] that model the alveolar-capillary barrier, in order to present the current knowledge on the topic. 2.
