On 27 May, BioTalentum organized an online workshop to present state-of-the-art results in the area of hiPSC-CM maturation. One of the goals of the event was to highlight the achievements of the EMAPS-CARDIO project, with particular attention on the social benefits of the heart-on-chip technology. The event attracted over 70 participants, mainly international researchers in different career stages. BioTalentum contributed with three talks: Prof. Dr. Andras Dinnyes spoke about the regulatory challenges of human pluripotent stem-cell based cardiac drug development, toxicology and therapies; Federica Lamberto explored fit-for-purpose methodologies for environmental cardio-toxicity testing; and Dr. Kornel Kistamas presented on the long and winding road to cardiac maturation.

The workshop also hosted a focus group discussion, which meant to identify social issues and promote sustainable development. BioTalentum collected the potentially important topics and welcomes feedback on it from anyone interested. Therefore, if you have a few minutes, please fill out the questionnaire at the link below:
