This year Empa and TEDD are joining forces to offer a program with a special focus on microphysiological systems, de novo tissues and organoids.
Such next-generation cell cultures are designed to replicate the physiological complexity of human tissues and organs. “Organ-on-a-chip” technologies combine different human tissues representing organs under physiological conditions such as flow, mechanical or electrical stimuli.
These advanced in vitro systems help understand human physiology and will pave the way for research and development of novel pharmaceuticals or biomedical materials and devices and at the same time surpass the limited predictivity of animal models. This will lead in the long term to a reduction of animal use in research fulfilling a sociopolitical need.
Hear about exciting science and technologies across different fields and disciplines in the Biointerfaces community, from Swiss and international research teams in academia, hospitals and industry.
We cordially invite you to join us for the Biointerfaces International Conference (BIC) 2022 in September at ETH Zurich, Switzerland.
Starting with a Pre-Conference Seminar, particularly for young scientists, PhDs and PostDocs on 12 September 2022.
The program continues with the Biointerfaces International Conference Zurich, 13-15 September 2022, combined with the TEDD Annual Meeting on 14 September.
We offer the opportunity to learn about scientific approaches, and new technologies and to meet representatives and specialists from different companies and institutions, in person.
It is our great pleasure to welcome you – see you in September!
Oral presentations won’t be recorded.
