Date: 21-22 March 2022
Location: Eindhoven University of Technology, Eindhoven, the Netherlands
Attention: This is an in-person workshop.
  • 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.
Lectures by AZAR Innovations:
    • Organ on a chip designs and configurations
    • Organ on a chip components: types of the components, how they work and where to buy them
    • Organ on a chip operation: preparation, adding cells, simple microfluidic theories and troubleshooting methods (e.g. bubbles and leakages)
    • Commercial Organ on chips: choosing the right system, organ on chips libraries and resources
Hands-on lab session by AZAR Innovations:
    • Set up Organ on chips: work with different components, connect different components.
    • Operate Organ on chips: practical operation, troubleshoot possible problems
Expert views (online presentations):
    • Dr. Pelin Candarlioglu – Cell Biologist/Bioengineer at Complex In Vitro Models (CIVM) group at GSK
    • Dr. Janny van den Eijnden-van Raaij – Managing Director hDMT
    • Dr. Martin Trapecar – Professor of Medicine and Biomedical Engineering, The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine
    • Dr. Ben Maoz – Department of Biomedical Engineering, and Sagol School of Neuroscience, Tel Aviv University
    • Dr. Mohammad Albanna – Founder & Chief Executive Officer, Humabiologics, Inc.
    • Dr. Stephen Gray – Co-founder Ourobionics & Cybosense
Hands-on lab session with commercial products:
    • Work with commercial products
