Multi-component systems to model the Placenta ecosystem

Please provide your feedback: :

The maternal/fetal/placenta ecosystem is complex, with dynamic communication happening among all of the components. Leveraging tissue on a chip technologies one can envision studying interactions of decidua, maternal blood component, immune cells, placenta, etc. to systematically interrogate key interactions. I wonder whether the community feels this is feasible, and also whether iPSC blastoids would be useful in such a multi-component system.
