Organ-on-a-Chip Symposia Series

OrganiserAdrian Biddle, QMUL CPM/OOACT Network Member

Inspired by the excellent response to online seminars during current events, we have launched an online monthly seminar series for the Organ-on-a-Chip Technologies Network using Zoom. The Network serves the whole of the UK research community and, as such, it is great to have an online seminar series that is accessible to everyone.

The seminar 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  •  talks will not be recorded, to encourage sharing of unpublished data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

Summer Symposium 2022: Hybrid Event  
23 June, 1.30pm - 5pm BST, Queen Mary University of London

This is a great opportunity to join an "in person" event to listen to an international keynote speaker, presentations from academia and industry, as well as networking with others working in the organ-on-chips field. Speakers and participants will also be able to take part remotely if it is not possible to travel to attend.

Please submit an abstract if you are interested in sharing your research at this event. 

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS  - deadline 18 April 2022

Please complete the abstracts (350 words max) using the abstract submission form, and e-mail to .

Abstract talks will be of approximately 15 minutes duration, and ECRs and PhD students are encouraged to apply. We will have the option of including 5 minute ‘flash talks’ that will be reserved for ECRs and PhD students to maximise the opportunities to speak.

If you haven’t already, please register  with the Organ-on-a-Chip Technologies Network where you will receive Network updates including: seminar advertising, registrations and Microsoft Teams invites. There will also be future sandpit events advertised via these updates aimed at forging new collaborations.
