Organs on chips are a new exciting possibility to more closely mimic human organ functionality in vitro than conventional 2D or 3D cell cultures. Organs on chips allow both, the emulation of healthy organs as well as the emulation of specific disease conditions using corresponding engineered or patient derived human cells. Moreover, organs on chips are ideally suited for high-throughput drug screening.
The aim of the school ’’Mimicking organs on chips for high throughput drug screening and basic research’’ is to focus on how to engineer in vitro disease models suitable for organs on chips incorporation as well as development and improvement of different organs on chips models.
