3-D Cell Cultures and Organ-on-a-Chip in the Pharmaceutical Toxicology and
Pathology - Use and Applicability
We are delighted to invite you to the joined scientific meeting of the sections Pharmaceutical Toxicology
and Toxicological Pathology of the Dutch Society of Toxicology (NVT).
The meeting is entitled “3-D Cell Cultures and Organ-on-a-Chip in the Pharmaceutical Toxicology and
Pathology - Use and Applicability” and will take place on April 19th in Leiden. The meeting will be held in
lecture hall C01, Gorlaeus Building, LACDR, Leiden University, Einsteinweg 55, 2333 CC, Leiden.
We have composed an exciting program with national and international (key) experts focusing on the
