Meet&Match "Organs-on-chips, organoids & other microphysiological systems as advanced human in vitro models"

November 7, 2019

Strasbourg (France)


BioValley France and BIOPRO Baden-Württemberg GmbH organize their 17th joint «Meet & Match» event. Focusing on «Organs-on-chips, organoids & other microphysiological systems as advanced human in vitro models».

Neurex is associated in the framework of its project Interneuron.



The focus of this networking event is present and future trends in the field of advanced human in vitro models, such as organ-on-a-chip approaches, organoid technologies as well as corresponding applications, e.g. in the area of early drug development.



The Meet & Match addresses research institutions and companies with an interest in cellular approaches, biotechnology, diagnostics and drug development. The objective is to establish new contacts, encourage participants to initiate cooperation or joint developments as well as to gain a better understanding of microphysiological systems and possible applications. The lunch and coffee breaks offer extensive networking opportunities.
