Dr. Peter Loskill is head of the Fraunhofer Attract group Organ-on-a-Chip in the Department of Cell and Tissue Engineering at the Fraunhofer Institute for Interfacial Engineering and Biotechnology IGB. Dr. Loskill graduated in 2012 from Saarland University with a PhD in Physics focusing on Biointerface science. He then spent 3 years in the laboratory of Prof. K. E. Healy at the University of California at Berkeley. There, he worked as a postdoctoral fellow and project leader, funded by the NIH NCATS TissueChip program and the German Science Foundation, and developed organ-on-a-chip systems based on human iPS-cell technology. In 2015, he was named as one of Technology Review’s “Innovators under 35 Germany”. He now leads an independent research group focusing on the integration of cardiac and adipose tissue into microfluidic environments and applications for drug screening and environmental toxicology testing.
