INSERM workshop “organ-on-chip: understanding and mimicking living organisms for better treatment”

Bordeaux, France
15-17 October, 2018

Inserm Workshop “Organ-on-chip: understanding and mimicking living organisms for better treatment”, phase I Critical Assessment

Nathalie PICOLLET D’HAHAN (CEA-BGE-Biomics, Grenoble), Donald K. MARTIN (TIMC-
IMAG, UGA, Grenoble), Christophe MARQUETTE (ICBMS-Université Lyon1-CNRS, Villeurbanne).

Organ-on-chip (OOC) technology is providing new platforms for drug discovery and toxicity testing and has the potential to become powerful for disease modelling and personalised medicine. This course will cover ongoing efforts and various applications of OOC while also addressing ethical issues.

UMCG-hDMT kick-off mini-symposium on Organ-on-Chip

Groningen, The Netherlands
 June 7, 2018

Recently, the UMCG has become a member of the hDMT (human organ and disease model technologies) consortium, which includes most academic centres and multiple industrial partners in the Netherlands. Membership in hDMT allows UMCG scientists to sign up for and participate in general hDMT meetings on organ-on-chip technology and specialist group meetings focusing on specific organs-on-chip. Currently, researchers associated with the hDMT consortium have organized themselves into focus groups around several themes: cancer-, vessels-, heart-, skin-, brain-, and intestine-on-chip. It is expected that other focus areas will be established in the near future given the rapid pace of the field.
