EUROoCS Digital lectures

This session will feature three brilliant researchers who are making groundbreaking advancements in Organ-on-Chip technology:

👩‍🔬 Mara Lucchetti will present on “Emulating the gut-liver axis: dissecting the microbiome’s effect on drug metabolism using multi-organ-on-chip models”. Mara has developed an innovative multi-organ-on-chip platform that predicts the gut microbiome’s impact on drug metabolism. Her research integrates the HuMiX model with the Dynamic42 liver-on-chip, providing a comprehensive tool to understand gut-liver interactions. Mara pursued her education in Biomedical Sciences at the Université Catholique de Louvain and is now a postdoctoral researcher in Paul Wilmes’ lab.

👨‍🔬 Mohammad Jouybar Jouy Bar will discuss “Tubular microchannels influence endothelial orientation: modeling cancer metastasis on a chip”. Holding a master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering from Politecnico di Milano, Mohammad is now pursuing his PhD at Eindhoven University of Technology. His work on Cancer-on-Chip models has successfully mimicked cancer invasion and intravasation, providing insights into cancer metastasis.

👨‍🔬 Janko Kajtez will present “3D-Printed Microfluidic Platform for Axon Guidance in Human Stem Cell Derived Neuronal Cultures”. Janko completed his PhD at Technical University of Denmark and is currently a postdoc at Lund University, focusing on developing stem cell-derived Parkinson’s disease models for phenotypic drug screening. His expertise in biomaterial and biofabrication solutions is paving the way for advancements in neurobiology applications.
