OUR NBIC AND ANTI-AGING

RESEARCH PROJECTS

NBIC

Setting up the French Microfluidic Valley through innovative start-ups is the goal of the Elvesys Microfluidic Innovation Center. Over the past five years, we already set up three innovative companies, pioneers in their field, and launched a dozen of research projects. We believe that microfluidics will be a cornerstone of the current NBIC technological revolution. It could help accelerate research in the fight against the aging process.

PROJET

Organ-on-chip

Developing organ-on-chip technology for pre-clinical testing and personalized medicine

This project aims to develop a system for human stem cell culture and differentiation, so as to imitate human organs as best as possible. It is funded by the French government.  It should offer an alternative solution to pre-clinical testing on animals, as well as help to develop testing methods for personalized medicine. More.
