Organ-on-a-Chip Technologies Network
Queen Mary runs the UK Organ-on-a-Chip Technologies Network providing access to pump priming funding, training activities, research meetings and collaboration opportunities.
The network is free to join and currently has over 800 members from academia, industry, the regulatory bodies and other interested third parties. We are funded by a grant from the MRC, EPSRC and BBSRC via the Technologies Touching Life scheme.
The aims of the Organ-on-a-Chip Technologies Network are to:
- Develop a vibrant multidisciplinary research community, bringing focus to the varied Organ-on-a-Chip and In Vitro model research activity in the UK;
- Facilitate inter-disciplinary and inter-sectoral research collaborations, to develop the next generation of organ-on-a-chip research solutions;
- To train, support and inspire the next generation of outstanding leaders in organ-on-a-chip research.
The UK Organ-on-a-Chip Technologies Network Director is Prof Hazel Screen, also the co-Director of the Queen Mary Centre for Predictive in vitro Models.
