EUROoC network lays the foundation for joint European organ-on-a-chip research
The Fraunhofer Institute for Interfacial Engineering and Biotechnology IGB is coordinating the establishment of a European research network to promote organ-on-a-chip technology. This enables the replication of human organs on a micro scale and is considered a technology with great potential, among other things for the research of new pharmaceutical agents and in personalized medicine. Since the development of Organ-on-a-Chip requires multidisciplinary competencies, the EUROoC network aims in particular at the interdisciplinary education and training of researchers.
