What is the state of the art of animal free testing of today and which innovations do we need in the near future? How do innovative models, like organoids, organ-on-chip and Microphysiological Systems (MPS) contribute to medical science? What do we gain and what is still out of reach when using animal free testing strategies? And what is needed to make future innovations possible?
During the next ORCHID phase we will specify the goals and milestones of the roadmap and define the underlying pathways to reach these goals. For that reason we will organize another ORCHID workshop, the ORCHID Strategy Workshop, and invite a small group of experts from academia, industry, patient organizations, regulatory bodies and medical centers.

The EUROoC aims to gather the research leaders in the emerging field organs-on-chip (OoC) with a special focus on young and upcoming scientists. 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 are remaining, which the OoC field has to address as a whole to enable a sustainable growth of this breakthrough technology.
3-6 July, 2019
The symposium aims at bringing together world-leading experts in the fields of mechanobiology, cell biology and developmental biology studying the mechanical basis of cell and tissue morphogenesis.
