MPS World Summit 2023

Welcome to Berlin!
MPS have advanced exponentially beyond anyone’s imagination over the last decade. The use spectrum of the new technology has moved within a short time from basic and clinical research to industrial applications in drug discovery and even to the production of data relevant to regulatory decisions. The power of MPS technology to emulate genuine human biology under experimental conditions is likely to make many animal experiments redundant. Dozens of new enterprises have bloomed worldwide on the back of this scientific bandwagon. The International MPS Society (iMPSS), inaugurated at the New Orleans MPS Summit in 2022, together with the European Organ-on-Chip Society (EUROoCS) are bringing the MPS World Summit series to Europe in 2023.


Microphysiological systems (MPS) comprise a number of bioengineering breakthroughs that reproduce organ architecture and function in vitro. Fueled by stem-cell technologies, a broad variety of especially human models and test systems have emerged, which make relevant experimental tools broadly available through international and multidisciplinary collaborations.

Conference series are a key tool to form a community and accelerate scientific developments, their implementation and global harmonization. They provide an overview on the state-of-the-art in such dynamic and diverse fields, enabling transfer learning. A global conference on MPS was identified by opinion leaders in the field as a key step forward in the maturation and harmonization of the area.

40+ international organizations and companies have teamed up for this proposal to initiate a series of annual MPS World Summits to present the latest scientific achievements, discuss the advances and challenges, and enable communication between young and newly interested scientists and pioneers of the MPS field.
