MEA Meeting – Programme

Confirmed keynote speakers

  • Prof. Diego Ghezzi, Medtronic Chair in Neuroengineering, EPFL Lausanne, Switzerland
    Title: "Neuroprostheses for artificial vision"
  • Prof. Donhee Ham, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, USA
    Title: "Brain, copy and paste"
  • Prof. Ellis Meng, University of Southern California, CA, USA
    Title: "Polymer Microelectrode Array Interfaces to the Nervous System"
  • Dr. Lucia Wittner, Research Center for Natural Sciences, Budapest, Hungary
    Title: "Physiological and pathological synchronisations in the human cortex"


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
