Workshop to Consider Use of Tissue Chips for Biomaterials Testing
The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences is partnering with three other institutes within the National Institutes of Health to hold an October 24-25 workshop on the use of tissue chips for biomaterials testing. The workshop will be held at the Washington Hilton in Washington DC. Attendees must register by Monday, October 14.
The “Workshop on Tissue Chip Platforms as Tools for Testing Biocompatibility and Biotoxicity of Biomaterials” will guide research into use of human tissue chip platforms for assessing biocompatibility, immunogenicity, and biotoxicity of biomaterials for research and clinical application in tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, oncology, dentistry, cardiology, drug screening, and other areas. Among the priority discussion topics will be the design and validation of tissue chips platforms for assessing biomaterial properties, and application of tissue chips platforms in predicting in vivo responses of tissues and organs to biomaterials.
