Third edition EMBL – IBEC Conference
Engineering Multicellular Systems

EMBL and the BIST community centre IBEC aim to contribute to the discussion on challenges and opportunities in the expanding field of engineered multicellular systems.

Recent breakthroughs in stem cell biology, organ-on-chip assays, 3-D bioprinting, and cell mechanobiology have revolutionized our ability to design and assemble multicellular living systems, from organoids to embryos.

This biennial series will focus on how engineering multicellular living systems is boosting our understanding of tissue and organ function, with applications in disease modelling, drug screening, and tissue engineering.

Session topics
Organoids to engineer tissues
Cell and tissue mechanics
Self-organisation of tissues
Engineering the embryo
In vitro vascular systems
Organ on chip
Modelling tissue organisation
