WORD+ 2024 is THE in person event for Organoid and Organ-on-a-chip researchers where we are silver sponsors! This exciting event brings together leading experts in the field of organoid and organ-on-a-chip research to share their latest findings and advancements.
Head to our exhibition stand – #13
Our dedicated team of creative problem solvers will be available to answer questions and share over a decade of organ-on-a-chip (OOC) expertise with you!
We look forward to meeting you at WORD+ 2024 to discuss how our PhysioMimix® range of products and services can help to improve the predictivity of your toxicology workflows and address your current workflow limitations – such as modelling the immune system in vitro and testing the safety of new modality drugs with human-specific modes of action.
Get familiar with our human-relevant single- and multi-organ in vitro models and learn more about their proven track record for delivering clinically translatable results, plus meet the new game-changing product in our PhysioMimix OOC range of microphysiological systems!

Our Team at WORD+ 2024
Dr Atefeh Mobasseri, Field Application Scientist at CN Bio, has an extensive background in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. Before joining CN Bio, she gained a PhD in Biomedical materials from the University of Manchester and carried out postdoctoral roles at the University of Manchester and Kings College London investigating the interaction, and effect, of 3D scaffolds on cellular behaviour. Since joining CN Bio, she has been supporting their European customers in using CN Bio’s range of PhysioMimix® systems to generate high content, human-relevant, data.
Dr Parham Ashrafzadeh is the UK/Nordics Account Manager at CN Bio and is based in London. Parham helps scientists within academia, biotech and pharma sectors to find the best solutions for testing their therapeutics which are more cost-effective, clinically relevant and safer at the drug discovery stage. Parham holds a PhD from Uppsala University in Sweden and completed a collaborative postdoctoral fellowship between four universities around the globe.
Dr Audrey Dubourg is CN Bio’s Product Manager for the PhysioMimix® OOC range of microphysiological systems. Prior to joining CN Bio, she worked as a postdoctoral scholar at the University of California – Los Angeles (UCLA), in the US, in the Microbiology, Immunology and Molecular Genetics department. She completed an MSc in microbiology at the University of Montpellier II, followed by a PhD in microbiology/parasitology at the University of East Anglia. Audrey has extensive experience in the disciplines of molecular biology and 3D mammalian cell culture. Since joining CN Bio, she has been actively involved in promoting the benefits of incorporating organ-on-a-chip technology into drug discovery and development workflows.
Christiana Skarlatopoulou is a Scientist at CN Bio in the Contract Research team. She graduated from the Biomedical and Molecular Research MRes program at King’s College London, with a focus on tissue engineering and hepatic fibrosis using organoids. Prior to her master’s, she worked as a research technician for Twin Research and Genetic Epidemiology at King’s College London, mainly performing biobank duties. Christiana gained a variety of biological and research skills during her BSc in Biology at the University of Regensburg, Germany. Since joining CN Bio, her focus has been on the delivery of contract research projects utilizing the PhysioMimix® OOC microphysiological systems and working on the NASH and DILI models.
