NOCI PhD-students and Postdocs learn about single cell RNA sequencing in UMCG

Our own Milica Dostanić from the #NOCI consortium has presented her work (a collab between #LUMC and #TUDelft) yesterday on the International MicroNanoConference. With her #heartonachip platform for making Engineered Heart Tissues, she won the Poster Award.

Yesterday there was an episode on Dutch children's tv about organs on chips featuring Christine Mummery and Berend van Meer:
Het Klokhuis

Day one of the third NOCI training in the beautiful city Groningen. Everyone is eager to get hands on experience in single cell RNAseq data in R. #noci #bigdata #rnaseq #community

Today and tomorrow, we will teach all PhD students and Postdocs from the @nociorganonchip consortium some of the things we are good at at @UMCGgenetica. Looking forward to it!

Very interesting interview with NOCI PI Christine Mummery about the heart-on-a-chip in NRC! (Dutch)

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

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.

#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

#NOCI PhD-Student from @LUMC_Leiden Jeroen Stein just presented his work at @Eurooc2019 on a multicellular IPSC-derived heart-on-a-chip model.

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!

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.

Second troppo breve retreat. To start off with a group picture. #organonchip #utwente @utwenteEN @UMCGgenetica @tudelft @ErasmusMC @LUMC_Leiden @_Hubrecht #noci #organonachip #ooc #eurooc

The 2nd 'Tropo Brève' NOCI retreat kick off by Christine Mummery at @WestCordSeeduyn, #Vlieland. Onto fruitfull discussions, the coming days!

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!

We are happy to announce that the winner of the hDMT Junior Researchers Challenges 2019 🏆is team 3D Blood Vessels-on-Chip. Heleen Middelkamp @hhtmiddelkamp, Mees de Graaf and Aisen de Sá Vivas @AisenVivas #organonchip

Very proud to be part of this team and happy to win this @hdmt_technology challenge call together with Mees de Graaf and Aisen de Sa Vivas @AisenVivas. @nociorganonchip collaborations in the works.

Wondering what an intestine-on-chip is and how it could help studying complex diseases, such as #CeliacDisease? Read all about it in our review, available now: @JoramMooiweer @SeboWithoff @wijmenga_cisca @my_ueg @nociorganonchip #Organonchip #stemcells

Happy and proud to say that our review entitled "Celiac disease-on-chip: Modeling a multifactorial disease in vitro" is now available online! @MoerkensRenee @SeboWithoff @wijmenga_cisca @my_ueg @nociorganonchip

Presenting my neurovascular unit-on-a-chip work here today. @HealthValley @utwenteEN #phdlife #organsonchips #healthvalley @hdmt_technology @nociorganonchip

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!

First day of the first NOCI PhD/PD retreat is almost over. Great discussions on a great location @oudaenutrecht.

Utrechtse wetenschappers hebben nier-organoïden gemaakt met cellen uit urine. Dat biedt mogelijkheden voor nieuwe behandelingen die minder belastend zijn voor nierpatienten @UMCUtrecht @_Hubrecht @Nierstichting

Using organ-on-chip technology to study complex intestinal diseases like celiac disease. NOCI PI @wijmenga_cisca was awarded the @my_ueg research prize 2018 and talks about this idea in the latest edition of #NVGE #DDDnews. Read the interview here
