The scientific program of the MEA Meeting will consist of:
- Invited and contributed talks in single-track scientific sessions
- Two poster sessions
The topics covered in the scientific sessions will include the full range of research with microelectrode arrays with a focus on:
- Stem cell-derived applications (neurons, cardio, muscle)
- Assay development (multiwell applications, validation strategies)
- Neural networks
- Disease models
- Microphysiological systems (organ-on-chip systems, microfluidics)
- Electro- and photostimulation
- Correlative methods (optical and electrophysiological stimulation and/or recording)
- Human cells and tissues
- In vivo applications (clinical applications, electrophysiological monitoring e.g. of nervous, cardiac or pancreatic signals)
- New technology: materials, designs and fabrication methods
