Successful online EUROoCS 2021 conference
The 3rd edition of the Annual EUROoCS (European Organ-on-Chip Society) Conference was again a virtual event, hosted by the University of Uppsala in Sweden. With more than 430 participants from 26 different countries, 6 keynote lectures, 40 abstract selected talks and 170 posters the conference again showed an increase in attendance compared to last year.
New in this conference were the panel discussions with the Industrial and Regulatory Advisory Boards of EUROoCS. In addition, a movie was presented, illustrating the state-of-the-art of 8 nation-wide networks on Organ-on-Chip and the growing community building in the European countries. Finally, prizes were handed over to the winners of the 'Best Presentation Award' (Ulgu Arslan, LUMC, the Netherlands), 'Best Junior Presentation Award' (Tengku Ibrahim Maulana, University of Tübingen, Germany), 'Best Poster Award' (Lea Lara de Maddalena, Alveolix, Switzerland), 'Travel Award' (Inês Sousa-Pereira, IBEC, Spain and Marina Pérez-Aliacar, University of Zaragoza, Spain) and 'Exhibition Quiz Award' (Claire Dessalles, LadHyx Ecole Poletechnique, France).
