Lost in Translation: Success through Collaboration-The Organ on a Chip Technologies Network

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Organ-on-a-Chip Technologies Network is a UKRI funded Technology Touching Life initiative, designed to capture, inspire and grow UK research activity in the Organ-on-a-Chip research field. Our global aims 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;
•Train, support and inspire the next generation of outstanding leaders in organ-on-a-chip research.

Our flagship sabbatical funding programme is designed to pump prime new collaborations and research activity in the field. Researchers can spend time in a different (cross-discipline) laboratory. Funding includes salary for the sabbatical period plus up to £5k consumables and a travel/subsistence grant.
We run 6 monthly network events, which aim at sharing members latest research, facilitating new collaborations and identifying routes to support our community. We are currently establishing a range of special interest groups within the network, providing financial support for groups to run more focused organ-on-a-chip workshops and events. We also provide funding for network members to travel between each other’s laboratories to initiate new collaborations.

We have a strong focus on early career researcher support and training, running activities specifically for this group. Currently, our early career researchers are spearheading new public engagement activities for the organ-on-a-chip community with support (financial, training and delivery) from our team.
The network is free and simple to join: https://www.organonachip.org.uk/
