Jan Lichtenberg's Biography

Jan Lichtenberg, CEO & Co-Founder, InSphero AG

Jan Lichtenberg, Ph.D., is Co-Founder and CEO of Swiss- and US-based InSphero Inc., the largest supplier of 3D cell-culture products and services for pharmaceutical customers worldwide. InSphero patented assay-ready 3D microtissues mimic the structure and functionality of organ tissue, e.g. liver, pancreas, or tumors including disease states like diabetes or NASH. The 3D microtissues allow for more predictive and reliable compound profiling for discovery and safety testing in a highly robust, rapid and cost-efficient way. Jan co-founded InSphero in 2009 and grew the company to 50 employees in Switzerland and the US while expanding the business to encompass all top 15 global pharmaceutical companies. Prior to InSphero, Jan had VP R&D and Product Management positions at Hocoma AG (medical robotics) and Uwatec (microelectronics). He holds a Ph.D. from the University of Neuch√Ętel and managed a research group at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH), Zurich.

Mimicking the 3-dimensional and cell composition of a tissue in vitro is essential to maintain cell-specific functionality to better de-risk compounds and biologicals. Here we present the cellular self-assembly approach to create a tissue-like environment with applications in efficacy and safety testing.
