Registration is Now Open!

Join us for our first webinar of 2024, featuring:

Victoria Hull, ASCCT 2023 Annual Meeting Poster Award Winner
Senior Bioinformatician, Inotiv-RTP
Research Topic: "Curating chemical use categories and exposure predictions to inform chemical assessment"

Elena Kromidas, ESTIV Best Oral Presentation Award Recipient at the 2023 World Congress (WC12)
Department for Microphysiological Systems, Institute of Biomedical Engineering, Faculty of Medicine, Eberhard Karls University Tuebingen, Germany 
Research Topic: “Development of a Healthy Cervix-, a Pre-Cancerous CIN- and an Immunocompetent Cervical Cancer-on-Chip.” 

Worldwide, women suffer from diseases affecting the cervix, including infections and malignant transformations. Leveraging microfabrication techniques and tissue engineering, three tissue models of the cervix were developed in an Organ-on-Chip platform. Long-term cultivation and perfusion allowed for treatment at patient-relevant doses and schedules or neutrophil integration, emphasizing the applicability of the models for basic mechanistic research and drug development.

These promising early career scientists will share brief discussions of their work followed by a Q&A.
