At the end of the day everyone is still very interested in the training 😉 all kidding aside, thanks so much #noci @tudelft team for virtually showing us around the clean room and MEMS fabrications! #training #microfluidics #nociorganonchip #noci
Our online NOCI PhD- Postdoc training has started! Very well organised by the researchers from @tudelft . Thanks for already a great training day, especially with the provided goodiebag. #organonchip #onlinetraining #training #noci #consortium
On the 25th of November 15:00 CET we will host an online DEMO to introduce you to our #OOC tools. Register at https://bit.ly/32MkpQc
Our biologist @amrothmann will show you how to assemble the inCHIPitᵀᴹ and the comPLATEᵀᴹ. @NikoGaio will introduce you to the applications.
Our NOCI researcher Berend van Meer has just defended his PhD thesis successfully and graduated with honours (cum laude)
Congratulations Berend for doing this great work and setting the bar high for the rest of us.

Great opportunity for biologists thinking of moving to organ on chips in their research!
Today we announce our #OOCtransition initiative for researchers willing to transition to animal-free testing.
Biologists can apply and have the chance to receive €15,000.00.

#NOCI-postdoc Berend van Meer has won the Hugo van Poelgeest award for finding alternatives of animal testing. He did so through sharing his vision of the future of drug-testing, and setting the foundation for realizing this, but also by public lectures. http://proefdiervrij.nl/winnaar-hugo-van-poelgeestprijs-2020
Exciting all day meeting with our @NWO_Science @nociorganonchip scientific advisory board to discuss progress in our exciting Gravitation program on organs-on-chip using #hiPSC! 🧫Already 21 PhD students involved 💪 @albertvdbergtwt
The retreat of the #noci is here, though with some more personal space than usual. Everyone is very happy to see each other again and to hear the latest updates on #OoCtechnology research. #ooc #organonchip
New paper from M. Dostanić et al., which is a beautiful collaboration between #TUDelft and #LUMC. Bringing cutting edge microfabrication and stem cell biology together, this paper shows a new method of creating a #heartonchip for #EHT culture. https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/document/9152964
Check out this incredible review in @NatRevDrugDisc , covering every aspect of #organonchip and where the field is at: a very complete overview of potentials, promises, pitfalls and challenges.

New regulatory tools may help replace, reduce and refine animal testing. One novel tool is Microphysiological Systems. FDA invites comments on its draft definitions for Microphysiological Systems and for Organs on a Chip: https://www.fda.gov/science-research/about-science-research-fda/advancing-alternative-methods-fda
Very interesting read on the relevance of microphysiological systems, multiorgan on chip, and bridging the translational gap between animal models and treating human diseases. #OOC #MPS #AnimalModels #StemCells

Joram Mooiweer from the #NOCI has won the best presentation prize of the #EUROoCS conference. An amazing honor, and very well-deserved (as he had only two days to prepare his talk). #gutonchip #celiacdisease #twoyearNOCIstreak #organonchip #OoC
The @Euroocs_conf crisisteam exists of many @nociorganonchip members as well.
#organonchip #apekop #euroocs #euroocs2020 @euroocs #godmode
Berend van Meer elaborating about the infrastructure to share technology across labs on the #EUROoCS. Standardizing and qualifying the #OoCtechnology through combining core expertise, training and commercialization. Great stuff! #NOCI #OoC #Organonchip
We open the second day of @Euroocs_conf #EUROoCS2020 with @MauriceAtEcvam of EURL ECVAM. He does such a good job putting our work on organs-on-chips in a larger regulatory and societal context. Very motivating to learn about the road to impact.
Good morning #science world, we are back in the virtual auditorium kicking off another day full of #OrganOnChip science with a keynote by @MauriceAtEcvam on regulatory considerations
And again we have split up into two parallel sessions featuring presentations from great young #OrganOnChip #researchers: #Biomaterials and #technology; #Barrier and #vasculature
Joram Mooiweer just gave a talk at the #EUROoCS about the impressive work and the results he and his group achieved in the research on Celiac disease on chip. #NOCI #organsonchip
The #Neurovascularunit on a chip-field is lucky to have such a bright young researcher like Dennis Nahon, who just presented his work at the #EUROoCS conference. Wonderful vascular networks and neural structures, using the #AIMBiotech chip. #NOCI #organonchip
Really enjoyed the first day of the @Euroocs_conf. Tomorrow another exciting day full of talks about Organs-on-a-chip, including my own presentation in the Barrier and vasculature session. @nociorganonchip
Now we are back in the virtual auditorium with a breathtaking presentation from Josef Penninger talking about the use of #Organoid for #COVIDー19 research in the @penningerlab
The virtual #PosterSession has started with lively discussions around more than 130 #OrganOnChip posters. Great to see so many young scientists and so much enthusiasm and #interdisciplinary #research
Hope everyone had a great non virtual lunch. Now we are back online with two parallel sessions on "#Organoids and #Spheroids" as well as on "#Disease #Models" featuring lots of great #OrganOnChip trainees
Now we have started two parallel sessions on #Biomechanics and #Microbiome with great presentations from many early career researchers. #OrganOnChip #YoungScientists
Lena Sophie Koch just presented her hipSC-gut/brain on a chip model, with beautiful axonal culture, and containing paneth cells and goblet cells in the intestinal organoids. A very ambitious project, and very clearly presented #noci #organonachip #EUROoCS2020
Now we are ready for our second Keynote speaker Susanna Narkilahti from @coeboc in #Tampere talking about #brain-on-chip models
Our first keynote speaker @andriesvdm presenting his amazing work on blood vessels in #OrganOnChip and why those are especially important for #COVIDー19 researchers
#EUROoCS2020 has started. @euroocs president Christine Mummery kicked off the conference. Looking forward to exciting science. Thank you to our sponsors and the organizers!
Ready for some #OrganonaChip research; looking forward to the online @Euroocs_conf with many talks and >150 posters, starting tomorrow. Great to see how the society has grown so fast. @euroocs @nociorganonchip #EUROoCS20
We are ready to go. Looking forward to welcoming more than 350 participants from 30 countries around the world to the first #virtual #OrganOnChip #conference. Check out the program at https://euroocs.eu/annual-meeting/
It's official: I am a tenured Associate Professor at the University of Twente @utwenteEN! Very excited to expand my work on organs-on-chips together with my colleagues and collaborators. I owe so much to the current lab, as well as the groups of @albertvdbergtwt and @DonIngber.
