Prof. Dr. Peter Loskill - Head of the 3R-Center Tübingen, Bridge Professor for Organ-on-Chip Systems between the NMI Natural and Medical Sciences Institute at the University of Tübingen in Reutlingen and the Faculty of Medicine of the Eberhard Karls University Tübingen, Research Group Leader at the NMI
Peter Loskill received his PhD in physics from Saarland University in 2012 and subsequently conducted his postdoctoral research at UC Berkeley. In 2015, he was recognized by Technology Review as one of the “Innovators under 35 Germany” and was selected for the Fraunhofer ATTRACT funding program.
In 2016, he founded the µOrgano-Lab, whose interdisciplinary research combines approaches from engineering, biology, physics and medicine to develop novel microphysiological tissue models that recapitulate complex human biology in vitro and can be applied to answer for example scientific, toxicological or pharmaceutical research questions.
In May 2021, he was appointed Bridge Professor for Organ-on-Chip Systems between the NMI Natural and Medical Sciences Institute at the University of Tübingen in Reutlingen and the Faculty of Medicine of the Eberhard Karls University Tübingen. Simultaneously he took over both the leadership of the 3R-Center Tübingen as well as the leadership of the Organ-on-Chip group at the NMI. Since the foundation of the European Organ-on-Chip Society (EUROoCS) in 2018, he has served as EUROoCS Vice President and, since 2021, as EUROoCS President. In addition and since 2018, he has led the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Interdisciplinary Training Network for the Advancement of Organ-on-a-Chip Technology in Europe (MSC-ITN-EUROoC) in the research and innovation program Horizon 2020 of the European Union’s, for whose overall coordination the 3R-Center Tübingen has been responsible since 2021.
