Gymnasium visits OOC Lab

26 students of the third and forth Gymnasium year with a major in biology from the Gymnasium Neufeld visited the Organs-on-Chip laboratory on 8 December. The team around Pauline Zamprogno, Jan Schulte, Karin Rechberger und Tobias Weber received the students at Murtenstrasse 50 to introduce them to 3D complex chip printing and culturing human lung cells on a chip to facilitate drug research in a promising alternative to animal testing. The young women and men were able to fabricate their own chips and pipet a human cell line on them which could subsequently be observed under the microscope.
