Overview

SELECTBIO Fourth Annual Organ-on-a-Chip World Congress 2018 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. We will also focus on "disease-on-a-chip", cancer-on-a-chip, immune system-on-a-chip.

Due to the overlap of this topic with bioprinting and 3D-printing, the co-located concurrent track will focus on this topic area allowing cross-over of presentations and scientific content. The Conference Tracks are Co-Located and Concurrent and Delegates can Participate, Mix-and-Match Presentations and Network Extensively with their Colleagues from all 3 Conference Tracks.  The Exhibit hall is also co-located and accessible by delegates from all 3 conference tracks.

Co-Located, Concurrent Conference Tracks:
  • Organ-on-a-Chip World Congress 2018
  • Bioprinting Summit 2018
  • 3D-Culture and Organoids 2018
  • Stem Cells for Drug Discovery and Tox Screening 2018
All the Key Opinion Leaders from around the World are Participating at this Conference allowing Maximal Information Exchange and Unparalleled Networking Opportunities.

Information and Local Registration Facilities for this Conference are also available in:

Japanese  |  Korean  |  Chinese (Simplified)  |  Chinese (Traditional)
