Organ-on-a-Chip Technologies Network



Organ-on-a-Chip symposium


Date: 16 September 2020   Time: 13:30 - 16:00

Please join us for an afternoon of research talks on the latest developments in organ-on-a-chip and in vitro models technology.

The keynote lecture will be from Prof. Milica Radisic, University of Toronto: "Advances in Organ-on-a-Chip Engineering"

Abstract presentations:

  • Vivek V Thacker, École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne: "SARS-CoV-2 infection leads to rapid endothelial infection and endothelialitis in a human alveolus-on-chip infection model"
  • Joana F. Neves, Centre for Host-Microbiome Interactions, King's College London : "Multicomponent intestinal organoid system reveals that ILC1-derived TGF?1 drives epithelial and matrix remodelling"
  • Kinga Kosim, Mimetas, "A microfluidic based human gut-on-a-chip model for 3D organ and disease modelling"

Flash talk:

  • Shayin Gibson, Edward Carter and Richard Grose Tumour Biology, Barts Cancer Institute, "Breast cancer spheroids: a platform to decipher critical luminal-myoepithelial interactions during disease progression"


The symposia series plans include:

  • a broad focus encompassing all in vitro models research aimed at predicting human biology
  • a mix of abstract talks and invited high profile speakers in the field
  • meetings to take place within core working hours enabling everyone to attend
  • talks will not be recorded, to encourage sharing of unpublished data
  • publishing abstracts on the OOACT Network website

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS: Wish to share your latest research findings with network members? Please submit an abstract for the opportunity to present at a future symposium.
