Overview

The Organ-on-a-Chip Europe 2016 conference explores this emerging field wherein microfluidics-based approaches are being utilized to assemble clusters of cells in a physiologically-relevant architecture.  These organs-on-chips can be utilized for functional studies ex vivo such as toxicity screening wherein a proper spatial cellular organization is key to manifest functionality.

Presentations from academics as well as industry participants highlight the emerging trends in this field as well as provide a path forward for technology and applications development which are explored in this conference.

Posters are welcomed as a means to disseminate the most cutting-edge work by researchers in this field.

We are looking to build the event for 2016 with an additional track, entitles Stem Cells in Drug Discovery, there will be even more talks, attendees and discussions.
