Cell & Tissue Engineering event of U(Z)Gent on 24th of April - 10/03/2020



Friday April 24, 2020

Organized by the Industrial Research Fund (IOF)

Dear colleagues,

In our ‘Connecting Expertise’ event series, we have the pleasure to invite you to an invitation only network event on April 24, 2020 to introduce you to the latest technologies and expertise at Ghent University, University Hospital Ghent, VIB-Ghent departments & university colleges in the broad domains of Cell & Tissue Engineering.

During this event, short technology pitches will be presented next to research groups pitching their particular needs. The first session will focus on clinical applications followed by a second session presenting technical challenges or solutions. The sessions will be interspersed with rounds of speed-dating to create an optimal environment for connecting expertise among participants.

We welcome basic and clinical researchers with backgrounds in biology, physics, chemistry, pharmacology, medicine and engineering working on all areas related to cell and tissue engineering-based technologies and approaches towards cellular therapies, advanced therapy medicinal products (ATMP's) and regenerative medicine.

- Biomaterials
- 3D (bio)printing & scaffolds
- Developmental (stem) cell biology
- Stem cells models and organoids
- Cell manufacturing & cell culture technology
- Cell delivery platforms
- Microfluidics and sensor fabrication, organ-on-chip
- Drug (toxicity) screening models
- Computational modelling
