They share their knowledge and expertise to develop Organ-on-Chip models, by integrating state-of-the-art human stem cell technologies and top level engineering with a wide variety of other disciplines. For further information, visit our website www.hdmt.technology or view the attached flyer.
Many research projects are being planned and executed within hDMT. hDMT researchers are interested in joining research efforts with companies, patient and health organizations, and such. Organs-on-chip are expected to be on the H2020 agenda soon, creating new opportunities for funding public-private collaboration.
