Our research project "ORGAN-ON-A-CHIP" will be funded by the Vienna Science and Technology Fund (WWTF) and received 771.000 Euros over a period of 4 years. Together with our research partners Prof. Kiener (lead) from the Medical University Vienna  and Prof. Mathies (UC Berkeley) we will integrate a human synovial 3D-micromass onto a chip platform containing embedded electrical and optical microsensors to analyze the interdependence of cellular reorganization and tissue function in an inflammatory microenvironment.
