Symposium “Investigating metabolism in organ-on-chip models”

|

hDMT-UMD SYMPOSIUM

Joint hDMT-UMD symposium about the integration of metabolism & Organ-on-Chip models.

When: Wednesday April 13, 2022
Location: Radboudumc, Nijmegen
Time: 10 am – 3 pm

Participation is for free, but registration is required. Please register for the meeting by sending an email to e.thomassen@hdmt.technology at the latest on April 6, 2022. Details on the location will follow upon registration.

Stem cell models offer a promising perspective to study the tissue-specific pathophysiology of Inborn Metabolic Disorders and novel treatments. At the same time, metabolism is an important factor to consider when optimizing Organ-on-Chip models. Analysis of metabolites and understanding metabolism in such models is still a challenge that needs to be tackled. In this symposium, we will discuss advances in stem cell models and metabolism and how they can be integrated.

PROGRAM

Keynote Speakers:

Andries van der Meer (UTwente):
‘Organs-on-Chips: dynamic in vitro models’

Pim Pijnappel (Erasmus MC):
‘A platform for human neuromuscular junction on a chip to investigate mechanisms of disease and to develop treatment options’

Dirk Lefeber (Radboudumc):
‘Studying (sugar) metabolism in patient-derived stem cell models’

The rest of the program will be based on selected abstracts:
Please submit your abstract (title, presenter/authors and affiliations, max 300 words) at the latest on March 30, 2022 to e.thomassen@hdmt.technology.

We hope to see many of you live in Nijmegen!

NIEUWS onderwerpen:

Met opbrengsten uit de VriendenLoterij PrijzenMarathon heeft Stichting Metakids het samenwerkingsverband (UMD) van zes universitaire ziekenhuizen kunnen faciliteren. Ook is onderzoek binnen het UMD gestart. Deelnemers van de VriendenLoterij spelen sinds de campagne in 2018 geoormerkt mee voor dit goede doel waardoor dankzij hen nog steeds fondsen geworven worden.
Daarnaast zullen Stichting Metakids en het UMD gezamenlijk en afzonderlijk actief werven voor additionele subsidiegelden om het UMD verder te ontwikkelen tot een duurzaam samenwerkingsverband.
