During this TEDD Annual Meeting, we would like to show MPS application diversity across different industries.

TEDD Annual Meeting 2021: Cross-industrial applications of organotypic models

Recent advances in microphysiological systems (MPS) promise a global paradigm shift in drug development, diagnostics, disease prevention, and therapy. The expectation is that these systems will model healthy and various diseased stages and disease progression to predict toxicity, immunogenicity, ADME profiles, and treatment efficacies. MPS will provide unprecedented human-like physiological properties of in vitro models, enabling their routine application in the pharma industry and thus supporting reducing drug development costs by lowering the attrition rate of compounds.

Furthermore, we believe that promoting the cross-sectoral collaboration of academia and industry will further pave the way for widespread exploitation in precision diagnostics and therapy, disease prevention, and personalized nutrition. This will set a future-oriented alternative to animal testing, which is essential in the socio-political context.

During this TEDD Annual Meeting, we would like to showcase MPS application diversity across different industries. The aim is to foster the development of next-generation microphysiological systems (MPS) based on 3D cell culture, organoid, and organ-on-chip technology. To enable visionary projects and radical innovations, we will cover multidisciplinary fields and connect different industry sectors, like pharma, medtech, biotech, cosmetics, diagnostics, fragrances, and food, with each other.
