MIMETAS wins LifeScience@Work award

Congratulations to NMC's spin-off company MIMETAS, which was awarded the prestigious LifeScience@Work award during the Dutch Life Sciences SME Event. Seventy‐five recently established Life Science companies were invited to compete through an online video pitch contest. A professional jury, consisting of primarily investors and life science professionals, judged the video pitches. In addition, an online voting system was used. MIMETAS won both aspects of the competition. The company is highly content with the recognition of MIMETAS’ technology and value propositon. They are glad to see that the need for better predictive 3D cell culture and Organ‐on‐a‐Chip models is widely recognized, not only abroad but in the Netherlands as well. They are solving an important issue with their technology and are paving the way for truly 21st century medicine and therapy selection. See also http://www.metabolomicscentre.nl/highlight/organs-chip.
