ECHO Webinar – Misti Ushio (TARA Biosystems)

May 25, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

Please join us for an ECHO webinar on Tuesday May 25, 2021 (11 am – 12 pm) featuring Dr. Misti Ushio (CEO, TARA Biosystems). Dr. Ushio’s presentation entitled, “TARA Biosystems: our journey of engineering human biology to transform cardiac drug discovery”, will feature an overview of TARA Biosystems, its technologies and the story behind its success.


TARA Biosystems harnesses innovations in stem cell biology and tissue engineering to generate in vitro biology that recapitulates human physiology with unprecedented fidelity. Their platform captures integrated physiologic endpoints of human cardiac function across a wide repertoire of cardiac disease phenotypes. Their data facilitates decisive evaluation of the efficacy and risk of novel medicines, increasing the probability of success and decreasing the long timeframes typically associated with drug discovery efforts.
