Bi/ond launched Organ-on-Chip project call
Bi/ond, the Dutch startup of hDMT partner Delft University of Technology, has launched a new initiative to forward research on Organ-on-Chip research and develop better models.
With this initiative, the startup aims to promote and accelerate the development of Organ-on-Chip models with the potential to reduce and replace animal testing. They have already received the support from multiple 3R groups. A future without animal testing is possible, and Organ-on-Chip technology can provide more accurate and animal-free models, according to Bi/ond. The accuracy and the success of these models will be the result of joint efforts between research, industry and associations.
The call is open to researchers working in the European Union and the United Kingdom. A great opportunity for biologists who are looking for alternatives to animal testing and are interested in Organ-on-Chips.
Further details on how to apply to the project call are available on their website.
The winner of the call will receive an in-kind contribution from Bi/ond, with an estimated value of 15,000 euro. With this budget, Bi/ond will help the winner to transition from their current model to one based on Organ-on-Chip technology.
The deadline for submitting full proposals is the 17th of December 2020, 5 pm CET.
