Spotlight Partner

MIMETAS enables scientists to develop better predictive human tissue and disease models with organ-on-a-chip technology. Our vision is to create the simplest device for the most complex 3D biology. The OrganoPlate® platform allows perfused 3D cell culture, membrane free co-culture and culture of tubules and vessels in a throughput never seen before.



Spotlight Partner

Curi Bio provides a seamless, bioengineered integration of human stem cells, systems, and data to accelerate the discovery of new medicines. Curi’s suite of human stem cell-based products and services enable scientists to build mature and predictive human iPSC-derived tissues—with a focus on cardiac, skeletal muscle, and neuromuscular models—for the discovery, safety testing, and efficacy testing of new therapeutics. Curi seeks to de-risk and expedite the development of new drugs by decreasing the industry’s dependence on animal models, which often fail to translate to humans. By providing researchers human-relevant preclinical data at the earliest stages of the development pipeline, Curi aims to dramatically accelerate the discovery and development of safer, more effective medicines.
