Abstract

BaselArea.swiss and CSEM with their partners Toolpoint for Lab Science join forces to organize the Basel Microfluidics and Microenvironment Workshop at Basel Life. This Forum builds up from the experience of two successful years to provide critical technological insights and latest updates from the global microfluidics industry for applications in the life sciences.
The focus of this year’s forum will be on the preparation of microphysiological systems in a microenvironment for boosting the relevance of in-vitro assays towards in-vivo outcome. This includes developments related to organ or model organism on a chip, droplet microfluidics or bioprinting.
The forum brings together scientists, entrepreneurs and managers in these fields, from both industry and academia, to exchange ideas and to promote innovation applicable to bio-pharmaceutical development, in particular to antibiotics R&D.
