ABSTRACT

A Spanish research centre working in agriculture and husbandry is preparing a proposal for the call H-2020-FETOPEN-01-2018-2019-2020: FET-Open Challenging Current Thinking. The project will develop a 3D cell culture model of the female reproductive system (human, bovine, porcine and dog) with the aim of improving animal and human reproductive performance and health. The partners sought are SMEs with expertise in reproductive tissue engineering in 3D.


FULL DESCRIPTION

Endometriosis, uterine infections and hormonal problems are reproductive disorders that impair fertility in human and other animal species. Infertility negatively affects health and welfare and carries severe economic losses to livestock up to 1.4 billion €/year just in EU.
The project will develop a 3D cell culture model of the female reproductive system (human, bovine, porcine and dog) from last updates in the field.
This proposal will provide alternatives to animal testing, increase the efficiency of treatments for female infertility –including human- and improve animal production.

The proposal is being prepared for the next FET OPEN call (H2020-FETOPEN-01-2018-2019-2020: FET-Open Challenging Current Thinking; 19 Sep 2019) by an international consortium of nine partners from eight European countries representing academic institutions, research centres and small industries that combines basic and translational research.

The Spanish research centre is looking for SMEs to perform the following tasks in the project:
- Development of new nanomaterial for 3D mammalian cell culture
- Development of platforms (i.e. microfluidic chips) for 3D multicellular culture system
- Development/ known how transfer-training of analytical tool compatible with samples in nm range.

EOI deadline: May 2nd 2019.
Call deadline: September 19th 2019.
Project duration: 156 weeks.


Partner expertise sought:

- Specific area of activity of the partner: SMEs are sought with expertise in:
- Nano-systems for 3D cell culture
- Diagnostic tool development
- Medical Technology / Biomedical Engineering
They will apply their expertise to collaborate in the 3D cell culture model of the female reproductive system.


Advantages & innovations:

3D reproducible, reliable cost-effective and easy-to-use in vitro culture models for oviduct and endometrium will be established for the first time.


Development Stage:
