OrganTrans M36 meeting | Utrecht, Netherlands
On January 23rd – 24th, partners of the EU-funded OrganTrans project gathered in Utrecht, Netherlands, for the prefinal M36 meeting hosted by Utrecht University partner in the unusual and interesting place, the railway museum.
Since the project will be finishing in June, it was an important moment to discuss and make final decisions on the integration and synchronization of the key components (bioprinting, bioink, cells, maturation platform) as well as optimization of the workflow for the development of a functional liver construct. Key decisions on the functional analysis of the constructs were discussed. Additionally, during this meeting, OrganTrans Consortium received valuable recommendations from the Experts of the External Advisory Board.
The platform developed within the OrganTrans project is a future alternative for organ transplantation medicine as it proposes a disruptive alternative to donor organs for patients with chronic end-stage liver diseases. Importantly, this research creates novel technologies that can be applied to other organ systems and tissues in the field of regenerative medicine.
