Most drugs and small molecules cannot cross the blood-brain barrier to treat diseases originating in the brain. Researchers in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the Johns Hopkins University are working on a model using actual cells found in this barrier to simulate how the blood-brain barrier works. The model will help scientists better understand how the barrier works. Such a model also could be used to test drugs for use to treat brain diseases or cancer.
