Why does medicine not work equally well for everyone? At the annual Science Open Day, on Sunday October 6th at Leiden University Medical Centre (LUMC), Laura Windt – PhD student in Prof. Dr. Christine Mummery’s lab – held a talk on a potential solution: Organ-on-Chip containing personalized stem cells.
Article “Simultaneous measurement of excitation-contraction coupling parameters identifies mechanisms underlying contractile responses of hiPSC-derived cardiomyocytes” now available.
Sartorius and Science looking for applications for their Prize for Regenerative Medicine and Cell Therapy

Trots op de mooie resultaten van mijn promovendi @MoerkensRenee en @JoramMooiweer o.l.v @SeboWithoff van @UMCGgenetica i.s.m. @nociorganonchip zwaartekracht consortium! https://twitter.com/afbdijkstra/status/1175730208504086529
Very interesting interview with NOCI PI Christine Mummery about the heart-on-a-chip in NRC! (Dutch) https://www.nrc.nl/advertentie/onvz/een-hart-zo-groot-als-een-speldenknop
Luistertip: Darmen op een Chip? Vanmiddag vertellen @SeboWithoff , @MoerkensRenee and @JoramMooiweer van het @umcg over hun onderzoeksprogramma: 'darmen-op-een-chip' in @Nieuwsenco @nociorganonchip @univgroningen https://www.nporadio1.nl/nieuws-en-co
Is this next generation of chips? Research from @CarnegieMellon & @NTUsg combines biology & electronics to create the organ-on-e-chip: a 3D electrophysiology of heart cells that could help us better understand cell communication + diseases like arrhythmia. https://www.natureworldnews.com/articles/41978/20190827/researchers-advance-organ-on-chip-technology-to-advance-drug-development.htm
#nociretreat was a great success as always. Combining inspiring talks with interesting people and even shockingly good weather! #organonchip #noci
Oh the thrill of a biological experiment that actually works on the first try! Great #NOCI teamwork from @tudelft and @LUMC_Leiden
A collaborative week has passed for #NOCI: two of our PhD students from @UMCGgenetica visited our people from @_Hubrecht for a practical hands-on training. #OoC #OrganOnChip #organoids
And of course not to forget congratulations to #NOCI PhD-Student Dennis Nahon from @LUMC_Leiden who was awarded one of the travel grants at @Eurooc2019!
#OrganOnChip #Organchip #EUROoC2019 @euroocs
A big thanks to the @Eurooc2019 organisers for a great OoC meeting! And great to hear two #NOCI posters were awarded. Congratulations to Mees de Graaf & @MoerkensRenee
#OrganOnChip #Organchip #EUROoC2019 @euroocs
#NOCI PhD-Student from @LUMC_Leiden Jeroen Stein just presented his work at @Eurooc2019 on a multicellular IPSC-derived heart-on-a-chip model.
#OoC #OrganOnChip #Organchip @euroocs
Congratulations for Mees de Graaf and his team for publishing a method of creating scalable and robust vessels on a chip. A stable 48hr co-culture of hiPSC-derived endothelial cells and primary human brain pericytes is no minor feat! https://aip.scitation.org/doi/10.1063/1.5090986
And so we concluded the 2nd practical training for #NOCI PhD's/PDs at the @LUMC_Leiden
All #noci PhD candidates and post docs are gathered here for the coming two days for workshops.

We are very proud to announce our new Board members: @wijmenga_cisca & Hans Biemans🎉. After 405 years Prof. Wijmenga is our first female Rector👩🎓. Mr. Biemans is the new vice president. Together with @JoukedeVries they form the Board of the #UniversityofGroningen. #since1614
And we're ready for our last presentation session for this trip. After this were homebound to actually do some science again.

The 2nd 'Tropo Brève' NOCI retreat kick off by Christine Mummery at @WestCordSeeduyn, #Vlieland. Onto fruitfull discussions, the coming days!
Celebrating the well deserved promotions of @SeboWithoff , @jingyuan_fu and @HelgaWesters . Congratulations! @umcg @univgroningen
Proud to hear that @my_ueg chose our review as editor's pick and thrilled to share that we already made big steps in realising #CeliacDisease-on-chip! A real team effort @JoramMooiweer @SeboWithoff @wijmenga_cisca @nociorganonchip https://twitter.com/UEGJournal/status/1123632599157673985
Our editor's pick this #celiacawarenessmonth is this state-of-the-art paper by @MoerkensRenee and 2018 @my_ueg Research Prize Awardee @wijmenga_cisca entitled: "Celiac disease-on-chip: Modeling a multifactorial disease in vitro".
Just another day at the office in Groningen @SeboWithoff @JoramMooiweer
I'm guest editing a special issue 'Blood-on-a-Chip' of Micromachines. Do you use microfluidic chips to manipulate, study or analyze blood, then please check out the description of the issue. Now open for submissions! https://www.mdpi.com/journal/micromachines/special_issues/blood_on_a_chip

Presenting my neurovascular unit-on-a-chip work here today. @HealthValley @utwenteEN #phdlife #organsonchips #healthvalley @hdmt_technology @nociorganonchip
Just filled out this survey. The beauty of organ-on-chip as an interdisciplinary field is that people with many different backgrounds can make valuable contributions. The main challenge is to design a training strategy that provides a common 'language' for mutual understanding. https://twitter.com/MadalenaCiprian/status/1098871144432783360
We came to the end of the #NOCI PhD/PD retreat. We enjoyed both days, saw nice presentations and heard and exchanged many cool ideas. Big thanks to the organisers and @oudaenutrecht for hosting! https://twitter.com/nociorganonchip/status/1104041657857728512/photo/1
First day of the first NOCI PhD/PD retreat is almost over. Great discussions on a great location @oudaenutrecht.
