The EIC Pathfinder Open project „DeLIVERy“ started on May 1, 2022 with a total duration of 48 months. It brings together researchers from several European Universities and 2 European Companies with the shared goal to develop novel innovative imaging and microphysiological systems technologies. These technological advances will be integrated into a single platform to enable the study of the effects of pharmacology on patient samples. The main goals of this development are:

– to reduce the amount of research conducted on laboratory animals

– to develop a platform to directly assess the effects that the interactions of multiple different drugs have on the human liver

– to develop novel imaging technologies to determine and evaluate morphological markers for the effects of poly pharmacy on liver cells and tissues

– to develop novel microphysiological systems that will allow maintaining liver cells and tissues over extended periods of time based on the simultaneous monitoring of multiple physiological parameters
