Dear TEDD Partners,
We want to announce the new date of the TEDD Annual Meeting - 14th October 2021 in Wädenswil, Switzerland entilted "Cross-industrial applications of organotypic models".

As a focus point, we set promoting the cross-sectoral collaboration of academia and industry to further pave the way for widespread exploitation of microphysiological systems (MPS) in precision diagnostics and therapy, disease prevention, and personalized nutrition.

Kind regards
TEDD Annual Meeting 2021
TEDD Annual Meeting - SAVE THE NEW DATE 14th October 2021!
During this TEDD Annual Meeting 2021, we would like to show MPS application diversity across different industries, which is in line with the National Thematic Network Innovation Booster project vision, Cell Insights 4 Life" (NTN IB CI4L).

The Swiss-wide consortium, including TEDD and the Thematic Platform In Vitro Diagnostics (TP-IVD), aims to foster the development of next-generation microphysiological systems (MPS) based on 3D cell culture, organoid, and organ-on-chip technology.

You will receive an update on the progress of the project NTN IB CI4L. This network will provide a fruitful environment to enable radical innovations by covering multidisciplinary fields and connecting different industry sectors, like pharma, medtech, biotech, cosmetics, diagnostics, fragrances, and food with each other.

Swiss Symposium in Point-of-Care Diagnostics
Swiss Symposium in Point-of-Care Diagnostics
This symposium is organized one week after the TEDD AM 2021 by our partners from the Thematic Platform In Vitro Diagnostics (TP-IVD).

The past year showed us more than ever the need for fast and reliable diagnostic tools to efficiently fight the spread of a pandemic threat. In the future f point-of-care (POC) diagnostics will offer to health care professionals new methods for immediate diagnostic and treatment measures, opening up new business opportunities for established and start-up companies.

The Swiss Symposium in Point-of-Care Diagnostics is the perfect venue to meet and exchange on new technologies and innovative product solutions addressing medical needs in POC diagnostics.

National research program (NRP) on animals, research and society
The Federal Council launched in February a new national research program on the topic of “Advancing 3Rs - Animals, Research and Society”. The main goals of the program are to reduce the number of animal experiments in scientific research, to improve animal experiments and to develop basic principles of ethical and social aspects in this area. The program budget is 20 million CHF for five years.
3D Frontiers
