Last week the 6th edition of the TIM (TNO gastroIntestinal Model) User Group meeting took place in Amsterdam. The 2-day event was extraordinary for various reasons. First of all, we welcomed 50 guests from all over the globe, the highest attendance since the start of the event in 2009.
This year’s edition was also an anniversary, since it was 25 years ago that Rob Havenaar and Mans Minekus started to develop the first prototype of an in vitro gastro intestinal model, soon to be known as TNO’s Intestine Model, TIM.
And we proudly introduced our new generation TIM system, which is designed as an easy-to-use, robustly engineered, smart and highly predictive in vitro model.
Last, but certainly not least, the program had a great line-up of reputable speakers from both academia and industry, presenting their latest results in both pharmaceutical and food in vitro gastro-intestinal research.
Both the setting and the informal atmosphere in which the event took place contributed to an open stimulating exchange of ideas, experiences and results. The new TIM model was received with great enthusiasm and the festive launch concluded a highly successful event.
All in all, we are proud to be part of the community of TIM Users and we invite you to join in.
