human organ and Disease Model Technologies (hDMT)
The new European Organ-on-Chip Society (EUROoCS) was officially launched in November 2018. The purpose of the society is to encourage and develop Organ-on-Chip (OoC) research, and to provide opportunities to share and advance knowledge and expertise in this field.The Dutch human organ and disease model technologies (hDMT) consortium aims to develop innovative 3D human organ and disease models on chips that recapitulate healthy and diseased human tissue. Furthermore, they want to enable valorisation and stimulate implementation of these models as test systems for different purposes.
hDMT and Top Sector LSH joined forces in a new call, named Health~Holland Organ-on-Chip Showcases, to stimulate the early phase in OoC technology development. After building a strong national platform and attracting substantial financial funding for R&D, hDMT expanded to a European level last autumn. The EUROoCS is one of the first outcomes of the Horizon 2020 project ORCHID (Organ-on-Chip In Development), which aims to create a roadmap for Organ-on-Chip technology and to build a network of all parties involved.
