Workshops in 2023

Biology-Inspired Microfluidic Microphysiological System Approaches to Advance Patient Benefit and Animal Welfare

Time: 23 - 24 June 2023

Venue: JW Marriott Hotel Berlin, Germany

A CAAT-Europe Transatlantic Think Tank for Toxicology (t4), together with Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd., TissUse GmbH and RISK-HUNT3R.
Working meeting with attendance by invitation only.

The think tanks on biology-inspired MPS held in 2015 and 2019 resulted in a roadmap towards the reduction and replacement of animals by MPS. Furthermore, they stimulated the implementation of an annual MPS World Summit and the formation of an international MPS society. 

This third CAAT workshop on biology-inspired microfluidic MPS approaches aims to analyze thoroughly the following three topics:
1. How to match human biology in MPS-based organ modelling?
2. Do MPS-based models enable disruptive discoveries in human life science?
3. How to achieve regulatory accepted MPS- based decision making in health care?
Subsequently, reporting on their status quo and developing recommendations to overcome remaining hurdles will be the expected output of the workshop. In line with this program international experts from academia, industry and regulatory bodies are selected and invited by the chairs.
