November 26, 2018 EUROoCS
Soheila Zeinali from the Organs-on-Chip technologies group of the University of Bern (Switzerland) received the Best Poster Award at the International Organ-on-Chip Symposium 2018 (IOOCS 2018) in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. This year there were no less than 55 poster presentations which were all of high quality according to the scientific jury.
The poster jury, consisting of professors Ronald Dekker (chair; TUDelft, Netherlands), Cecilia Sahlgren (Åbo Akademi University, Finland), Shuichi Takayama (Georgia Tech, USA), and Jaap den Toonder(TU/e, Netherlands), had a hard time selecting the poster award winner from the high-quality poster contributions. First, 20 candidates were selected based on the submitted abstract, according to the rating by the scientific program committee. These posters were visited by the poster jury, and evaluated on the basis of four criteria: poster layout, presentation, scientific quality and innovation.
The winner was Soheila Zeinali, with her poster “Role of Rhythmic Breathing Motions on In Vitro Pulmonary Vascular Remodeling”. Her poster had a clear and attractive layout, and she presented the poster clearly and with enthusiasm. The topic of the poster is a nice example of a novel technological development applied to a biologically relevant question, and shows the great advantage of organ-on-chip technology, since the results could not have been obtained with conventional approaches. A deserved winner!
