Biointerfaces International Zurich 2022

The Biointerfaces International 2022 Zurich Conference, 13 – 15 September 2022. Multi-disciplinary talks by academic and industrial speakers, designed to connect world-leading scientists and engineers for a stimulating exchange of ideas and discussions on future directions and emerging innovations.

This year BIC offers a program with a special focus on microphysiological systems, de novo tissues and organoids.

Such next-generation cell cultures are designed to replicate the physiological complexity of human tissues and organs. “Organ-on-a-chip” technologies combine different human tissues representing organs under physiological conditions such as flow, mechanical or electrical stimuli.

These advanced in vitro systems help understanding human physiology and will pave the way for research and development of novel pharmaceuticals or biomedical materials and devices and at the same time surpass the limited predictivity of animal models. Hear about exciting science and technologies across different fields and disciplines in the Biointerfaces community, from Swiss and international research teams in academia, hospitals and industry.
