The 2nd Annual Organ-on-a-Chip World Congress 2016 focuses on an important and expanding field wherein cells are being assembled using microfluidics and Lab-on-a-Chip technologies in a functionally-relevant manner.  These clusters of "assembled cells" have functional significance and can mimic in vivo organ structure.

Liver cells assembled on-board chips in a physiologically-relevant architecture using microfluidics can, for instance, be utilized for toxicity screening and the ability to assemble organ fragments ex vivo can provide an exquisite means to reconstruct biological processes (both physiological and pathological) "in a dish" or "on a chip."  A number of chips such Lung-on-a-Chip, Brain-on-a-Chip, Gut-on-a-Chip, Marrow-on-a-Chip, Bone-on-a-Chip, Nerve-on-a-Chip amongst others have been built and will be presented and explored at this conference.

Due to the Overlap of this Topic with 3D-Culture to create a physiologically-relevant milieu in which tissue architecture is preserved and functionality represents the in vivo state, the co-located concurrent parallel conference track focuses on this this topic plus presents the technologies for the construction and assembly of organs-on-chips, thereby offering complete coverage of these related fields to the conference delegates.

The Two Conference Tracks are Co-Located and Concurrent and Delegates can Network Extensively with their Colleagues from Both the Conference Tracks.

All the Key Opinion Leaders from around the World are Participating at this Conference allowing Maximal Information Exchange and Unparalleled Networking Opportunities.
