Presentation

Organ-on-Chip Center Twente

The Organ-on-Chip Center Twente is a center of expertise aimed to bring together researchers interested in Organ-on-Chip and share their knowledge. The affiliated UT scientists, across all faculties, are encouraged to share their vision on the topic of Organs-on-Chips, discuss the latest developments in the field, explore practical collaborations and participate in writing research proposals. Equally important, the Organ-on-Chip Center Twente aims to facilitate services to researchers and companies outside of the UT and give them access to the technology developed here in order to accelerate innovation and real-world application.

The Organ-on-Chip Center Twente has two scientific leads (Liliana Moreira Teixeira & Andries van der Meer) and a business lead (Berend van Meer).
