MERLN researchers host symposium on regeneration-on-chip at TERMIS-EU 2017
Researchers from MERLN Institute for Technology-Inspired Regenerative Medicine hosted a symposium dedicated to the subject "Microfactories for Tissue Engineering or Regeneration on a Chip" at the European Chapter Meeting of the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society 2017 (TERMIS-EU 2017), in Davos, Switzerland.

This effort highlighted the relevance of microfluidics-driven technology within the fields of Biomaterials and Regenerative Medicine. The symposium, organised by Prof. Pamela Habibovic and postdoctoral researcher Dr. David Barata (MERLN's Department of Instructive Biomaterials Engineering) consisted of the keynote lecture by Prof. Andrew deMello (ETH Zürich) on the topic "Droplet-based microfluidics: Towards massively parallel chemistry and biology" and 5 lectures selected from submitted abstracts. The highly attended symposium offered the opportunity to both early-career and senior researchers to share the latest breakthroughs of their scientific work, creating the environment for enthusiastic debate over the presentations.
