Organs- and Tissues-on-Chips (D1) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held during Apr 08 - 12, 2018 at Big Sky Resort, Big Sky, Montana, United States of America.
Course description :
This technology has great potential to advance the study of tissue development, organ physiology and disease etiology. In the context of drug discovery and development, it should be especially valuable for the study of molecular mechanisms of action, prioritization of lead candidates, toxicity testing and biomarker identification. These microfabricated devices have also proven to be useful for modelling human diseases. This conference will touch on ongoing efforts and various applications of tissue-on-chips technology to studies in precision medicine, environmental exposures, reproduction and development, cancer and for use at the International Space Station.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
