Overview

The Organ-on-a-Chip World Congress 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 amongst others have been built and will be presented and explored at this conference.

Due to the Overlap of this Topic with 3D-Printing, the Second Track of this Conference Focuses on Technologies and Applications of Biofabrication and 3D-Bioprinting in the Life Sciences.

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.

Present your Research at this Conference to a Worldwide Audience:
