Following the first workshop in the project 2016 oa hdmt workshop'hDMT/NanoInside: Organs-on-Chips Technology Platform', the Institute for human Organ and Disease Model technologies (hDMT) has granted funding to pump and prime the project of Dr. Yolande Ramos (Molecular Epidemiology, LUMC) and Hossein Eslami Amirabadi (Microsystems group, TU Eindhoven).

2016 oa microfluidic chipsRamos and Eslami Amirabadi will integrate in-vitro osteochondral biology expertise with state-of-the-art microfabrication to develop a model system ready to capture biological complexity and interactions of the bone-cartilage interphase, particularly in osteoarthritis. The initiated collaboration between life scientists and mechanical engineers will boost development of alternatives in human disease model technology which thus far has mostly been applied to soft tissues.Ramos and Eslami Amirabadi will integrate in-vitro osteochondral biology expertise with state-of-the-art microfabrication to develop a model system ready to capture biological complexity and interactions of the bone-cartilage interphase, particularly in osteoarthritis.

TU/e and other universities in the Netherlands are working together with industry in the new hDMT foundation (Institute for human Organ and Disease Model Technology) for organ-on-a-chip-technology. Chips of this kind can greatly accelerate the development of new pharmaceuticals and treatment methods. By joining forces, the Netherlands is on the way to becoming a world player in this field.
