Humanizing the Drug Discovery & Development Process with Organs-on-Chips
9 March, 2022 | 17:00 - 21:00
Drug discovery and recapitulation. Two words that are being used more frequently in recent days and in large part due to a fantastic bit of microengineering that has produced organ-on-chip systems. This biomimetic technology was designed to emulate human organs and their unique functional components—while simultaneously allowing investigators to measure responses to a wide array of potential therapeutic compounds. Organs-on-chips are genuinely one of the most transformative innovations that the life sciences have seen in the last decade and are expediting the drug development process, as well as integral in making it safer.
In this GEN Summit, we have assembled an outstanding group of experts to cover a broad range of topics centered around organs-on-chips. A highlight of this event will be a keynote presentation from Dr. Donald Ingber, the Founding Director of the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University, and the pioneer of organ-on-chip technology. During this half-day conference, we will discover together the current state of this disruptive science and how it is reshaping the traditional drug discovery paradigm.
Register today and reserve your seat for what is sure to be a truly informative and inspiring event.
