MIMETAS in TEDx: 'Why Organs-on-Chips raise the odds in drug development'

TEDxBoerhaavedistrictStudio: Walk in the Park

Leiden, February 21, 2022 – TEDxBoerhaavedistrictStudio guides us through a virtual ‘Walk in the Park’ with inspiring TEDx speakers from the Boerhaavedistrict in Leiden, The Netherlands. Each month, a guest speaker from the district shares ideas worth spreading. This month, Jos Joore (MIMETAS’ CEO) spoke at the second stop of the virtual ‘Walk in the Park’ through the Boerhaavedistrict in Gemeente Leiden. In his TEDxBoerhaavedistrictStudio Talk, Jos explains why the development of pharmaceuticals is a hugely expensive and uncertain process and offers a possible solution for more efficient drug development.

'’We need better models that are 'more than human' to address diseases more efficiently. Because the wrong model leads to the wrong drug.’’

Watch the TEDx talk below where Jos discusses how MIMETAS is changing the way new drugs are discovered.
