Vacancy 3 PhD and 1 Post-doc Position

Are you interested to develop innovative wafer-scale microfabrication technologies for advanced silicon- and biodegradable technology-based Organs-on-Chip (OoC)?

Yesterday, we started our #NOCI Troppo Breve meeting with the opening talk by @MummeryLab. In the next days, we will be sharing the latest results on organs-on-chip from the different partners of the consortium and discuss possible collaborations.
#NOCI #OoC #organonachip

We’re ready for two days of practical training at the @UTwente. First talk from @andriesvdm on OoC, standards and open technology platforms!

UMCG organ-on-chip team in the 6th annual hDMT consortium meeting!!

A fun day full of science and wonderful people. Thanks, @hdmt_technology for bringing all of us together 🙂

Kick off of the 6th @hdmt_technology annual meeting. Looking forward to the updates on Organ-on-Chip research in the Netherlands!

Pitched my poster for the #nanobiotech conference this afternoon. Fun to promote your poster and research before the actual poster session 🤗
@NBTmontreux #noci @nociorganonchip #organonchip

We want to introduce our new #NOCI member Maurits Unkel from ErasmusMC, supervised by Steven Kushner and @F_deVrij. Maurits will work on bioinformatic analysis of the Brain & OoC

Want to know more about his research?:

Had an amazing two days at the #EUROoCS2022 conference! Proud to receive the Best Oral Presentation Award as a very special recognition for the past 4 years of work during my PhD.
Thanks team @UMCGgenetica @JoramMooiweer @AaronRamirez02 @SeboWithoff @JonkersIris, on to next year

That concludes the conference.

Thank you @euroocs, we had a blast!
Hope to see you all again next year in Berlin.

That was the afternoon of #EUROoCS2022, with presentation by #NOCI PhDs @MoerkensRenee, Paul Motreuil, and José Manuel Rivera Arbeláez where they presented the most recent results on their projects in Organ-on-chip.

Two winning NOCI PhD students for the best Oral Talks award #EUROoCS2022.
Congratulations @MoerkensRenee & @LenaSophieKoch!


Fantastic!! Congratulation to NOCI PhD student Michael Hu for winning one of the best poster awards! #EUROoCS2022

The EUROoCS 2022 conference has started! Looking forward to two full days of OoC research and discussion. Check out my presentation on Tuesday, in which I will on steering epithelial and mesenchymal cell type composition in an iPSC-derived Intestine-Chip. @nociorganonchip

Come check our (⁦@tamargo_isabel⁩) poster at #EurOoCs2022 about iPSC based #LiverOnChip and its intended applications to study genetic and dietary influence!

Grenoble is waking up as we're preparing ourselves for the first day of the #EUROoCS2022 annual meeting. Make sure to join us in the conversation on Twitter using the hashtag and/or by tagging our account. On y va!

The day before EUROoCS 2022. We’re looking forward to meet you all again and to talk Organ-on-Chip science! Safe travels everyone and see you tomorrow. #Grenoble #OoC #EUROoCS2022

Our #NOCI PI Dr. Clémentine Boutry, assistant professor at Technische Universiteit Delft, shares her passion and fascination for biodegradable materials. She highlights the possibilities for the #OoC field!

Your own cells as a medical treatment?

Today we were at the Regenerative Medicine Day at @leiden2022 to represent the Organ-on-Chip technology with @hdmt_technology. A really interested audience and really interesting conversation!


Currently ongoing: Our #NOCI Troppo Breve meeting in the Belgium Ardennes. We’re happy to be back to a F2F meeting with all the PIs, postdocs & PhDs.
Exciting to be discussing the achievements of the last 5 years and to look ahead on the next 5 years!

A NOCI PhD journey between organoids and organs-on-chips

Written by NOCI trainee @JensPuschhof on his journey involving complex organoid systems, the NOCI consortium and collaborations. And how he is continuing his journey with Organs-On-Chips.


"With all the expertise that comes together in NOCI, I think there are great times ahead".

Erasmus Associate Professor Femke de Vrij talks about her journey towards Brain-on-Chip research and her current work in the #NOCI-blog: https://noci-organ-on-chip.nl/brains-on-chips-boc/. #neurons #brain #chip

A dive into… the blood vessel!

NOCI PostDoc @Ttk08421685 'Dives' into the bloodstream and shows us what it's like there for her research


The word is out!
We've received a Positive Evaluation of the NOCI Program, meaning funding for NOCI will be continued for a second term of 5 years!


We are happy to share that our #NOCI researcher Dennis Nahon from @LUMC_Leiden, won the best presentation award at the EVBO summer school 2021 with the work titled "A Modular 3D NVU-on-a-chip model for studying vascular dementia"
Congratulations !!!

We're launching a survey to biologists to ask for your opinion on how the next generation of Organ-on-chip should collect, process, & visualize data.

Your response will enable us to bring Augmented Reality into the OOC world & impact biological research.


The #brain is one of the organs we are working on within #NOCI
