BioValley France and their German network partner BIOPRO Baden-Württemberg GmbH organise their 17th joint «Meet & Match» event. Focusing on «Organs-on-a-chip, organoids & other microphysiological systems as advanced human in vitro models», the event takes place on Thursday, November 7, 2019, in Strasbourg.
Thematically, the focus of this networking event is on present and future trends in the field of advanced human in vitro models, such as organ-on-a-chip approaches, organoid technologies as well as corresponding applications, e.g. in the area of early drug development. 10 presentations from researchers and industry will provide further insight into exciting research and development projects.
Jun.-Prof. Dr. Loskill, head of the «µOrgano-Lab» will hold a keynote on basic and translational research projects carried out in cooperation between the University of Tübingen and the Fraunhofer IGB in Stuttgart.
The Meet & Match addresses research institutions and companies – from the French region Grand Est and Baden-Württemberg – with an interest in cellular approaches, biotechnology, diagnostics and drug development. The objective is to establish new contacts, encourage participants to initiate cooperation or joint developments as well as to gain a better understanding of microphysiological systems and possible applications. The lunch and coffee breaks offer extensive networking opportunities.
During the «Short presentation session» participants may introduce their company or research group to enable intense networking opportunities. You can apply for a 2-3-minute short presentation upon registration until Tuesday, October 22, 2019. Please note that the number of short presentations is limited and that the session is arranged for research institutions or companies being active in R&D or production. Selection is made by the organisers.
The participation is free of charge. For organisational reasons, prior registration is requested. Therefore, please fill out the registration form on the website of our partners.
We look forward to seeing you in Strasbourg!
