PRESENTATION : Stimulating 3D Skeletal Muscle Microtissues in a Novel Perfusable Microphysiological System with Integrated Electrodes

IIm meeting talk Skeletal Muscle culture

📣 SPEAKER ANNOUNCEMENT 📣

Stimulating Skeletal Muscle Microtissues in a novel perfusable mucrophysiological system integrated with electrodes. This is the title of the presentation that our CTO, Nikolas Gaio, will be giving in Italy soon. The meeting of the Interuniversity Institute of Miology, is taking place in Assisi Italy, 12-15 of October.

During the session, Nikolas will talk to the audience about how Bi/ond has managed to stimulate 3D Skeletal Muscle Microtissues in our perfusable microphysiological system, incorporating integrated electrodes.

He will present the results of our assay where we successfully culture bit.bio skeletal muscle cells on our MUSbit™ platform, obtaining as a result 3D muscle bundles, and experiencing robust muscle contraction.

Do not miss this opportunity to see this ground breaking results in first person!

In Zurich for Next Gen Organoids and organ-on-chip workshop by CSEM

3rd Next Gen Organoids and Organ-on-Chip workshop

We are thrilled to announce that we will be in Zurich on 24 and 25th of August joining the 3rd Next Gen Organoid and Organ-on-Chip workshop, organized by CSEM(*). 

If you are in the pharma & biotech industry, or you are a clinician, regulatory expert or work in a research organization, you may consider joining as well. There will be multiple keynote sessions where some relevant topics will be discussed, amongst others:

  • How to accelerate the translation of advanced in-vitro models into clinical and drug development applications 
  • How to develop innovative products or services based on groundbreaking technologies 
  • How to overcome barriers associated with the adoption of new methods and technologies in a regulated environment 

We hope to see you there!

📅 When: 24 – 25 August 2023, 

📍 Where: Technopark Zürich, Technoparkstrasse 1, 8005 Zurich

Bi/ond at ACE-SCORE annual meeting

ACE-Score

Bi/ond will be attending the annual meeting of the Erasmus University Academic Center of Excellence for Stem Cells & Organoids in Personalized and Regenerative Medicine (ACE-SCORE). The event will take place of the 31st of August at the Centrale Bibliotheek in Rotterdam. 

What is ACE-SCORE?

Erasmus MC started in 2015 a series of Academic Centers of Excellence to strengthen collaboration between care, research and education, discover new opportunities and inspire each other. ACE SCORE aims to promote interactions and collaborations between fundamental and translational research efforts in multiple disciplines relating to stem cells and organoids, to accelerate innovation and bring regenerative and personalized medicine approaches closer to the patient.

The group’ aim is very close to Bi/ond’s company vision to develop lab technology that will allow for more accurate drug testing and simulations of any tissue type.

We welcome this opportunity to further our relationship with Erasmus Medical Centrum, and learn from their research groups about their struggles, latest discoveries and future plans.

Will we see you on the 31st of August in Rotterdam?

Travel with us to Torino for EACR 2023

EACR 2023 Torino

We are in full preparation mode for EACR 2023, the annual Congress of the European Association for Cancer research.

Our colleagues Liesbeth and Curtis will travel to Turin from 12 to 15th of June to be present at this important event, which highlights the latest research in the oncology field, and brings together the cancer research community.

At our booth, you will be able to find out more about our products, inCHIPit ™ and comPLATE™, as well as their applications for cancer research, and we will be informing also about actual results from some of our partners.

We hope to learn from you about your challenges, and contribute to inspiring you discover a new way of conducting your research through the use of organ-on-chips.

Meet us at booth #58 so we can start building connections and collaborations for a better future for cancer patients!

June is full of events for Bi/ond

event route map

June is around the corner and we are super excited about it. Why? Because we will be leaving our office behind for some days to show the world about Bi/ond! These are some of the activities that we have planned for next month. Will we see you at any of them?

From 5 to 8th of June, our CEO, Cinzia Silvestri will be in Boston as part of a Dutch delegation at the BIO International Convention.

We will then travel to Turin from June 12 to 15th, to join the Annual Congress of the European Association for Cancer Research (EACR 2023). Do not miss our booth, number 58, and an opportunity to learn more about our solutions!

Towards the end of the month, we will cross the border to Germany and participate in the MPS (Microphysiological systems) World Summit (June 26-30th). You can find us at our booth, (number to be announced) or at one of the several poster sessions where we will be presenting our products and applications.
