Cardiovascular research strives to identify new ways of treating cardiovascular diseases with an end goal of bringing new and effective medicines to patients.
So does Markus Bosteen, Senior Scientist at the Department of Vascular Biology at Novo Nordisk, whose research focuses on endothelial responses to various types of flow. His aim is to better understand how pathological flow patterns can affect the progression of atherosclerosis—a severe cardiovascular disease affecting many diabetes patients in the world.
Atherosclerosis affects the inner lining of arteries to thicken by a build-up of plaque, therefore potentially fatally restricting and blocking the blood flow.
Join the event with Markus Bosteen as he demonstrates how he maximizes the amount of information gained from a single flow experiment! For this, he will describe his customized setup that combines the ibidi flow system together with both Electrical Cell-Substrate Impedance Sensing (ECIS) and real-time holographic imaging with the HoloMonitor® system.In addition, you will have the chance to hear more about the products utilized in this flow experiment setup at the end of the presentation and learn from the questions of the Q&A session!

Dr. Markus Bosteen studied Molecular Biomedicine and graduated from the University of Copenhagen in 2011. He first got interested in vascular research during his bachelor studies. He continued this research—with a focus on endothelial function during inflammation, angiogenesis, and mouse models of atherosclerosis—throughout his master's program and his Ph.D. (University of Copenhagen, 2016). After that, he worked extensively with cell-based assay and immunoassay development and validation as a Scientist and Research Scientist at AGC Biologics, Bio Porto Diagnostics, and Ferring Pharmaceuticals. Since 2021, he has been working as a Senior Scientist in the Vascular Biology Department at Novo Nordisk.
Dr. Peggy Benisch will briefly share key information about using the ibidi flow system and the impedance measurement system for successful microfluidic assay setups in your lab. Learn more about your options for simulating various physiological conditions in blood vessels by combining the ibidi Pump System with different channel slides.
Lisa Bodily will summarize the take-home information on the HoloMonitor® live-cell analysis system. Learn about further applications and how the technology provides researchers with non-invasive and quantitative real-time data on their cell cultures down to a single-cell level.
