For successful Organ-on-Chip research, combining multiple areas of expertise is crucial. This time a recipe for Organ-on-Chip fabrication by a biologist, NOCI PhD-student Renée Moerkens from UMC Groningen.
“A journey of a silicon wafer to become an organ-on-chip” by Hande Aydogmus, NOCI PhD Student at TU Delft
NOCI researcher Jens Puschhof from the Hubrecht Institute, group of Prof. Hans Clevers, defended his thesis with cum laude honors
Article review: Gut-brain axis interaction in Parkinson’s disease and the accuracy of recreating human physiology in model systems”, by Lena Koch, NOCI PhD-student at UTwente.
Due to the pandemic, the EUROoCS 2021 conference will again be organized in digital format. Registration and abstract submission are now open.
NOCI researcher Heleen Middelkamp from the University of Twente has published a paper in Scientific Reports on January 26th, where she and the co- authors demonstrated that culturing neurovascular unit (NVU) cell types on microfluidic chips changes their gene expression profiles.
“Diary notes from the perspective of an organ-on-chip” by Laura Windt, NOCI PhD-student at LUMC
Looking back to 2020 and looking forward to 2021 by Cayetano Pleguezuelos Manzano (NOCI PhD-student at Hubrecht Institute)
Within the NOCI) the ECTM group at TU Delft is looking for an enthusiastic post-doc to supervise and expand ongoing activities in innovative and scalable microelectromechanical organ-on-chip devices (OoCs), and to contribute pro-actively to bring the devices to full fruition for biological applications within the NOCI.
If something good has come out of this pandemic is that many conferences and trainings are now virtual. NOCI Postdoc Cristina Gontan Pardo from EMC recently followed the first NOCI Virtual practical training organised by the TUD-team.
