5 Year Anniversary of hDMT
The year 2020 is a special year for hDMT since we celebrate our
5 year anniversary. After the start on 6 February 2015, hDMT has
developed into a thriving and growing Organ-on-Chip Consortium.
With the support of the hDMT board and the small hDMT team,
consisting of the chair, the managing directors, the coordinator
and communication advisor, hDMT has become an organization where
collaboration is obvious, and where ideas, expertise and facilities
are shared by the Consortium partners in an open atmosphere.
The many different theme groups form the beating heart of hDMT, both for senior scientists from various disciplines and for young next-generation scientists, eager to learn the skills of Organ-on-Chip technology.
Interaction and collaboration with private partners, companies, regulators, clinicians, patient organizations, governmental organizations and many more, not only in the Netherlands but also abroad, in Europe and worldwide, has made the hDMT Consortium a well-known player in the Organ-on-Chip field. Thanks to international partnerships in projects like ORCHID (Organ-on-Chip In Development), and due to the establishment of EUROoCS (European Organ-on-Chip Society) the ecosystem on Organ-on-Chip has been strengthened further.
We look forward to continue our activities, together with our (inter)national friends and collaborators, to achieve the level of acceptance of Organ-on-Chip models for use in daily life.
