VITROCELL at the 3rd MPS World Summit, June 10-14, 2024 at Seattle, Washington

March 4, 2024


REVIEW from the 3rd Microphysiological Systems World Summit (MPS World Summit)

In all talks and discussions, the participants showed a strong commitment in developing methods to replace animal testing. The common goal is validation, qualification, and regulatory acceptance of New Approach Methodologies (NAMs).

During the conference, it was announced that Charles River Laboratories, in collaboration with MatTek Life Sciences Corporation, were awarded with a grant from the Foundation for Chemistry Research and Initiatives to advance research alternatives. For this work, a VITROCELL Continuous Flow Exposure System will be used.

We had a fantastic time in Seattle meeting our customers, project sponsors and developers of new technologies.

Looking forward to seeing you next year in Brussels


VITROCELL will participate in the 3rd MPS World Summit, June 10-14, 2024 at Seattle, Washington.

Microphysiological systems (MPS) comprise a number of bioengineering breakthroughs that reproduce organ architecture and function in vitro. Fueled by stem-cell technologies, a broad variety of especially human models and test systems have emerged, which make relevant experimental tools broadly available through international and multidisciplinary collaborations.

Conference series are a key tool to form a community and accelerate scientific developments, their implementation and global harmonization. They provide an overview on the state-of-the-art in such dynamic and diverse fields, enabling transfer learning. A global conference on MPS was identified by opinion leaders in the field as a key step forward in the maturation and harmonization of the area.

40+ international organizations and companies have teamed up for a series of annual MPS World Summits to present the latest scientific achievements, discuss the advances and challenges, and enable communication between young and newly interested scientists and pioneers of the MPS field.
