A device that mimics a living, breathing human lung on a microchip has been developed by researchers from the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University, Harvard Medical School and Children's Hospital Boston.

The device, about the size of a rubber eraser, acts much like a lung in a human body and is made using human lung and blood vessel cells.
