European Organ-on-Chip Society open for active membership - The founding phase is complete

The European Organ-on-Chip Society (EUROoCS) is now welcoming members to join. The annual conference, held this year in Graz (Austria), saw launch of the community website and the start of its availability as an information resource, see here

02.-03. Juli 2019:

1st Annual Conference of the European Organ-on-Chip Society

Jun.-Prof. Dr. Peter Loskill ist Gründungsmitglied und Vice Chair des EUROoCS-Netzwerks, das sich auf internationaler Ebene für die Förderung der Organ-on-a-Chip-Technologie einsetzt. Am 2. und 3. Juli 2019 fand an der Technischen Universität Graz die erste EUROoCS-Jahreskonferenz statt, zu der rund 230 internationale Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler zusammenkamen. Dabei wurden gleich drei Mitarbeitende aus Loskills Attract-Gruppe für ihre Arbeiten ausgezeichnet.

Für mehrere Kolleginnen und Kollegen des IGB war die Teilnahme an der ersten EUROoCS-Jahreskonferenz sehr erfolgreich. So wurde Julia Rogal für ihren Posterbeitrag »WAT-on-a-chip: Microphysiological systems integrating human white adipose tissue« und Johanna Chuchuy für ihr wissenschaftliches Poster »Retina-on-a-Chip: Controlled illumination of a PDMS-free Retina-on-a-Chip for the proximity-culture of retinal organoids with pigment epithelial cells« mit dem mit 250 Euro dotierten EUROoCS-Posterpreis geehrt. Ihr Kollege Oliver Schneider wurde für den Abstract zu seinem Vortrag »Centrifugal Heart-on-a-Chip: User-friendly and parallelized generation of hiPSC-derived µ-tissues« von einem internationalen Komitee mit dem EUROoCS Travel Award ausgezeichnet, der einen Reisekostenzuschuss vorsieht .

The website is Live!

You are here. So it exists.

Thanks to everyone in the lab for putting the information and images together. Special thanks to Johanna Chuchuy and Elena Rubiu for taking the lead.

Dr. Christopher Probst received a Keystone Symposia scholarship

Dr. Christopher Probst received a Keystone Symposia scholarship to attend the upcoming meeting on Organs- and Tissues-on-Chips, Apr 8 - Apr 12, 2018, in Big Sky Resort in Big Sky, Montana.

We are hosting the EUROoC in Stuttgart, May 24-25th 2018

The EUROoC meeting aims to attract leading international researchers for knowledge-sharing and networking with a clear focus on engineering perspectives of organ-on-chip and microphysiological systems. The meeting series would especially like to attract the participation of young and upcoming scientists with the ambition to become the natural meeting place for researchers in the organ-on-chip field in Europe.

The first EUROoC meeting calls for scientific contributions addressing the engineering challenges associated with organ-on-chip. The meeting will take place in Stuttgart, Germany, 24-25 May, 2018.
