TARGET GROUP: Biologists and non-technical biomedical scientists who are working or want to start working with organ-on-a-chip systems.

Radboudumc Stem Cells Technology Center and AZAR Innovations jointly organise an Organ-on-a-chip MasterClass with the following themes:

  • Brain, central nervous system, and retina
  • Skeletal muscles
  • Vasculature
  • Organs on chips are small medical devices in which researchers can grow living cells to model human organ functions.
  • Setting up and operating these small chips with a fluidic system around it requires learning basic principles of physical processes, tools and methods.
  • This is a MasterClass where biologists and non-technical users of these systems learn how to choose, set up and work with organ on chips.

This MasterClass consists of:

1. Lectures by AZAR Innovations

organ-on-a-chip MasterClass, Course, training, microphysiological systems, hands-on, lab, course, workshop, principles, theory

    • Organ-on-a-chip designs and configurations: helps participants choose or design an organ-on-a-chip system
    • Organ-on-a-chip components: enables participants independently choose and implement different components and modules in an organ-on-a-chip system
    • Organ-on-a-chip operation: simple but important know-hows about preparation, cell seeding, microfluidic theories and troubleshooting methods (e.g. bubbles and leakages)
    • Commercial Organ-on-chips: help participants choose the right system, organ-on-a-chip companies and resources

2. Hands-on lab sessions by AZAR Innovations

organ-on-a-chip MasterClass, Course, training, microphysiological systems, hands-on, lab, course, workshop, principles, theory, lab training, chips

    • Set up Organ on chips: learn about different perfusion technologies, learn how to connect different components, learn how to prepare chips and seed cells in the chips.
    • Operate Organ on chips: tips & tricks, must-know practical information, troubleshoot problems

    • Design your idea in an Organ on a chip: Working in a group, you will given a problem to solve. We will help you understand important aspects in every step of the way, and through this, you will learn the important factors from the design to validation of an organ-on-a-chip system.
    • Work in a group: You will learn tips & tricks, and useful information from your peers through instructed sessions.
