An-organ-on-a-chip is a cell culture chip that simulates the activities, mechanisms and physiological of entire organs and organ systems, creating a type of artificial organs. It constitutes biomedical engineering research. The convergence of labs-on-chips and cell biology has permitted the study of human physiology in an organ-specific context, introducing an in vitro multicellular human organism. Organs that have been simulated by microfluidic devices include the heart, the lung, kidney, artery, bone, skin and much more.
This presentation will focus on the development of organ-on-a-chip models for medical development in the industry and personalized treatment on hospitals.
Keynote speaker: Professor Niels B. Larsen, Head of Sections at DTU Health Tech, develops and uses polymer mikro- and nanotechnology to investigate and control the behavior of organic molecules and living cells. The aim is to obtain a higher understanding of the human cells and local surroundings, in order to develop better methods for treatments through understanding and control of the cell behavior.
