The Organ On Chip Centre Twente will be launched 8 October 2020

Friday, 25 September

As pre-event of the TechMed congress, the Organ-on-Chip Center Twente will be launched. The new center of expertise aimed to bring together researchers interested in Organ-on-Chip and share their knowledge.

The Organ-on-Chip Center Twente (OoCCT) is supported by the MESA+ Institute and the TechMed Centre of the University of Twente. OoCCT brings together researchers interested in Organ-on-Chip to share their knowledge. The affiliated scientists, across all faculties, are encouraged to share their vision on the topic of Organs-on-Chips, discuss the latest developments in the field, explore practical collaborations and participate in writing research proposals. Equally important, OoCCT aims to provide services to researchers and companies outside of the University of Twente and give them access to the technology developed here in order to accelerate innovation and real-world application of Organs-on-Chips.

OoCCT has two scientific leads (Liliana Moreira Teixeira & Andries van der Meer) and a business lead (Berend van Meer)

You can join the launch online on Thursday 8 October and learn what the OoCCT can do for you.
