Unfortunately, Kimberly Homan from Wyss Institute had to cancel her keynote lecture and will not attend to EUROoC 2019.
We are happy that Geraldine Hamilton from Emulate accepted our invitation to fill this gap and present the latest developments from Emulate.
The conference date is coming closer but you have still have the chance to submit late breaking news as poster until May 31st 2019. Submit via the submission page!
Online registration is open and will close May 31st 2019.
We are pleased to inform you that the abstract submission deadline for the EUROoC2019 – 2nd European Organ-on-Chip Conference has been extended until Sunday 3rd March 2019
We are proud to announce Kimberly Homan from the Wyss Institute as keynote speaker.
Our keynote speaker programm is now completed. We will provide an attractive mixture of presentations from academia and industry:
- Kimberly Homan (Wyss Institute)
- Roger Dale Kamm (MIT)
- Maxime Mahé (INSERM)
- Anna Herland (Karolinska Institute, KTH)
- Stefan Kauschke (Boehringer Ingelheim)
- Richard Peck (Roche)
The EUROoC 2019 organizers will offer travel awards for students. The award is meant to support personal attendance of 4 students at the conference. Students selected for the award will receive a fixed sum of 250 Euros.

EUROoCS – The European organ-on-chip society was launched at the third International Organ-on-Chip Symposium, held on 8 and 9 November 2018 at the University of Technology in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. The Society will encourage development and coordination of Organ-on-Chip research in Europe in support of better health for all. Membership will be open from 2019 to all researchers in the field, providing access benefits to the pending digital Organ-on-Chip platform, the annual meeting and the future society journal. The next annual meeting will be the EUROoC 2019 in Graz.
We are proud to announce our first three keynote speakers for EUROoC 2019
- Roger Dale Kamm (MIT)
- Stefan Kauschke (Böhringer Ingelheim Pharma)
- Maxime Mahé (INSERM Nantes)
The aim of this workshop series is to gather the research leaders in Europe in the emerging field organs-on-chip (OoC) with a special focus on young and upcoming scientists. The extremely interdisciplinary field of OoC research is rapidly growing while new and innovative systems are constantly being developed. However, a variety of engineering challenges are remaining, which the OoC field has to address as a whole to enable a sustainable growth of this breakthrough technology. Hence, we see a need for a scientific meeting focused on the engineering challenges in the process of designing, fabricating, and implementing microphysiological cell culture systems addressing topics such as microfabrication of 3D matrices, integration of miniaturised sensors, microfluidic interfacing, cellular engineering, parallelization and automation. The EUROOC meeting series aims to fill this need and provide a platform for an interdisciplinary exchange. Such a focused meeting series is needed as the research field by nature is very diverse, spanning topics such as developmental biology, drug delivery, 3D cell cultures, organoids, organ-specific models and regulatory aspects
