Understand and predict human response earlier.  

The Frankfurt User Group Meeting (UGM) is a one-day event intended for those new to Organson-Chips as well as seasoned users of Emulate’s technology. This highly informative series of scientific sessions will feature keynote presentations by leading researchers, panels hosted by experts, and networking opportunities with peers.

Though we would love everyone to attend the event in person, we understand that this is not feasible, which is why we are also opening the event for virtual attendance.
