The Organ-on-a-Chip Technologies Network is to host an online monthly symposia series starting in September (via Microsoft Teams), that will be accessible to the whole of the UK research community.

The symposia series plans, organised by Adrian Biddle, include:

  • a broad focus encompassing all in vitro models research aimed at predicting human biology
  • a mix of abstract talks and invited high profile speakers in the field
  •  meetings to take place within core working hours enabling everyone to attend
  •  talks will not be recorded, to encourage sharing of unpublished data
  • publishing abstracts on the OOACT Network website
  • Call for Abstracts for the first series of symposia, running from September up to February next year

The abstracts (350 words max) need to be completed using the Network’s abstract submission form (see below) to be returned by the closing date of August 1st.

There will be further calls for abstracts for meetings beyond February 2021. Abstract talks will be of approximately 20 minutes duration and ECRs and PhD students are encouraged to apply. There will be the option of including 5 minute ‘flash talks’ that will be reserved for ECRs and PhD students to maximise the opportunities to speak.
