Organ-on-a-Chip: Technologies and Applications

Held in conjunction with Organ-on-a-Chip & Tissue-on-a-Chip Europe 2019

17 Jun 2019, at 08:30-11:00 in Rotterdam, The Netherlands


Location of the Training Course: Rijndam Room -- 7th Floor -- Marriott Rotterdam.


This Training Course presented in tandem with the SELECTBIO Organ-on-a-Chip Europe 2019 Conference provides an interactive presentation and discussion of the technology platforms, methodologies, as well as application areas in the exciting space that is created by the deployment of microfluidics and lab-on-a-chip technologies for creating "organs-on-chips" (or sometimes referred to as "body-on-a-chip").

Referred to as "Microscale systems", there are several classes of organs-on-chips which have been built including:


Topics Addressed in this Training Course

Overview of the Opportunity:  Why would Microscale Systems ("Organs-on-Chips") be Useful for Drug Development?

Physiologically-based Pharmacokinetic/Pharmacodynamic Models as a Guide to Develop Model Systems (Microphysiological Systems)

Brief Overview of Microfluidics

Organ-on-a-Chip Systems: Concepts, Uses and Limitations plus Examples

Body-on-a-Chip (or Microphysiological Systems): Integrating Organs-on-a-Chip to build Surrogates for Drug Development

All Course Delegates Receive the Electronic Copies of the Presentations Plus Publications and Up-to-Date Reviews on this Field to Bring Back and Use as Reference Material for R&D Planning/Presentations, Business Plans and Investor Presentations.

The course tutor is Professor James Hickman, Professor at the University of Central Florida as well as Chief Scientist at Hesperos, Inc.
