ERC success for the Tenje Lab!


Prof. Maria Tenje has been awarded an ERC Consolidator Grant (a call for which over 2,600 proposals were submitted) to advance the knowledge frontiers in microfluidics and microsystems engineering.

The news was announced this week that the project 'PHOENIX', or 'Paving the way for High-throughput Organoid ENgineering using Integrated acoustiX' was successful. This project will allow the Tenje lab to:

  1. Develop biocompatible acoustofluidic methods for manipulation of stem cells in viscous media
  2. Acquire spatio-temporal control of the organoid differentiation process via microfluidic solutions
  3. Integrate vascular networks in cerebral organoids using microfabrication techniques
  4. Validate added benefits and improved functionality of cerebral organoids generated on-chip
