23 May, 2018
On 23 May 2018 31 experts from 14 countries, representing academia, industry, regulatory bodies and medical centers, met in a welcoming atmosphere at Fraunhofer IGB in Stuttgart during a workshop of the ORCHID (Organ-on-Chip In Development) project. The purpose of this invitational Vision workshop was to define the ingredients of the European organ-on-chip roadmap. The workshop was organized by Janny van den Eijnden-van Raaij from hDMT (work package leader Roadmap) and chaired by Christine Mummery from LUMC (coordinator). (more…)
Organ-on-chip technology allows representing in vitro human organs and disease models in the context of human genetics as well as mimicking in vivo disease tissue environment leading to personalized medicine and reduction of animal experimentation in fields as critical as drug development or cancer.
