European Organ-on-Chip Society in the making
One of the outcomes of the ORCHID Vision workshop that was held in Stuttgart on 23 May 2018 was the establishment of the Organ-on-Chip Society. hDMT has taken the initiative to set up this society and is planning the launch during the International Organ-on-Chip Symposium (IOOCS18) in Eindhoven on 8 and 9 November. Membership of the society will have many advantages and will enable OoC researchers to find and meet each other and to start new collaborations in the OoC field.
The Digital Platform on Organ-on-Chip, that is currently in development within ORCHID, will become an important tool to further build the OoC ecosystem.
