Our review of synthetic biology on chip, entitled “The Usual Suspects 2019: of Chips, Droplets, Synthesis, and Artificial Cells” has been published in Micromachines as part of the Special Issue Microfluidic Applications in Synthetic Biology.
CellChip Group participated at the first European Organ-on-a-Chip Conference (https://cbmsociety.org/conferences/eurooc/) held in Stuttgart, Germany
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.
MSW is the Nordic forum for microsystems and nanotechnology. It offers an overview of Nordic academic and industrial research into MEMS, microfluidics and nanosystems. Program consists of invited and contributed talks, poster session and start-up panel discussion.
