CoEBoC aims to develop a new “body-on-chip” platform which will consist of several cultured tissue blocks connected with cultured vasculature and nervous systems. Nervous system integrated with a computer measures, stimulates, analyzes and even controls the different biological processes in vitro.
CoEBoC combines multi-disciplinary expertise on human stem cells, biomaterials, sensors, microfluidics, biomodeling and bioimaging. The resulting expertise and technologies will improve e.g. development of new personalized treatments and drug development.
