CSEM, the Molecular Evolution Lab of the University of Basel, and the cluster Toolpoint for Lab Science join forces to organize the 2nd Basel Microfluidics and Microenvironment Forum at BASEL LIFE. As in the previous year, the forum will focus on the preparation of microphysiological systems in a microenvironment for boosting the relevance of in-vitro assays towards in-vivo outcome. This includes developments related to organ or model organism on a chip, droplet microfluidics or bioprinting. Newest technological developments and critical insights from the end users will come together at this forum. The forum brings together scientists, entrepreneurs and managers in these fields, from both industry and academia, to exchange ideas and to promote innovation applicable to bio-pharmaceutical development.
3D in-vitro models and organ-on-a-chip technologies are paving the way to the next revolution in drug discovery and predictive medicine. Learn more about these technologies and how they are used by pharma leaders.
11-15 November, 2018
