Overview

SelectBIO 8th Annual 3D-Culture, Organoids and Organs-on-Chips 2021 Conference will be held on-site in-person on Coronado Island, California. The Conferences 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.

Registered delegates will have full access to the co-located and concurrent tracks and sessions to mix-and-match presentations and maximize networking:
  • Lab-on-a-Chip and Microfluidics: Techologies, Companies and Commercialization 2021
  • Point-of-Care Diagnostics & Biosensors 2021
  • 3D-Culture, Organoids and Organs-on-Chips 2021
  • Extracellular Vesicles (EVs) 2021
There is a co-located exhibition with companies from around the world exhibiting on-site in person at the conference.

Proof of Covid-19 Vaccination Required in Order to Participate On-Site at this Event.  Participants Not Vaccinated for Covid-19 Can Participate Virtually at this Event.

Masks required onsite for all participants.

**Conference on Schedule and is Taking Place Onsite at the Marriott Coronado Island Resort & Spa**
