  • covers potential diagnostics and therapeutics for major human diseases as well as platform technologies
  • presents selected startups in an interactive panel format
  • combines 10-min pitches with poster exhibitions
  • provides ample opportunity to network face-to-face with conference attendees to share and discuss inventions
  • is jointly organized by a broad range of technology transfer organizations.

At the first European Organ-on-a-Chip Conference

The extremely interdisciplinary field of OoC research is rapidly growing while new and innovative systems are constantly being developed. However, a variety of engineering challenges remain, which the OoC field has to address as a whole to enable a sustainable growth of this breakthrough technology. This meeting will focus on the engineering challenges in the process of designing, fabricating, and implementing microphysiological systems addressing topics such as microfabrication of 3D matrices, integration of miniaturized sensors, microfluidic interfacing, cellular engineering, parallelization and automation, and discussions spanning topics such as developmental biology, drug delivery, 3D cell cultures, organoids, organ-specific models and regulatory aspects.
