Netherlands ready for big role in organ-on-chip consortium

The Dutch contribution to a European project that simulates organs on microelectronic chips is underway at the Institute for Human Organ and Disease Model Technologies.

The institute, known as the HDMT, brings together various Dutch organisations including Delft and Eindhoven Universities of Technology, the Universities of Twente and Groningen, Wageningen University and Amsterdam University Medical Center.

It started to unite organ-on-chip pioneers about five years ago. So far, 15 Dutch research organisations have joined, each paying €20,000 to run different services for the virtual outfit. Together, these organisations contribute to Organ-on-Chip in Development, or Orchid, a European consortium of seven research organisations located in five European countries, coordinated by Leiden University Medical Center.
