We had the pleasure to attend ELRIG Fr meeting in Bischoffsheim (near Strasbourg) on the 23-24th of May. There we enjoyed meeting our partners Molecular Devices and Integra biosciences, and seeing great presentations about the last trends in automation. Our collaborator Karim Si-Tayeb presented his amazing results regarding the differentiation of iPSCs into mature hepatocytes in BIOMIMESYS matrix, our 3D culture technology that is compatible with automation. #intNASHday
We also attended the first EUROoC meeting, which took place in Stuttgart (Germany) on the 24th-25th of May and was organised by the Chemical and Biological Microsystems Society. With excellent talks and keynote lectures the meeting fulfilled our expectations and was a perfect place for discussing future collaborations! We particularly appreciated the lecture of Christopher Hughes about the perfused Blood-Brain Barrier on a chip, and of Róisín M. Owens dealing with 3D cell biology integrated with 3D conducting polymer devices. We left the meeting with plenty of ideas and new contacts in the field!
