SMi’s 4th Annual 3D Cell Culture
Event Feb 19 - Feb 20, 2020
Copthorne Tara Hotel, London, UK
London United Kingdom
CHAIRED BY: Philip Hewitt, UK and Eurotox Registered Toxicologist, Global Head of Early Investigative Toxicology, Merck Healthcare KGaA and Stefan Przyborski, Professor of Cell Technology, Durham university
Development and application of human organs and tissues in vitro
Over the past few years, 3D Cell Culture has gained momentum within the pharmaceutical industry due to the benefits that this model offers for in vitro applications patient-derived tissues, drug discovery, predictivity and validation, and safety and toxicity.
SMi’s 3D Cell Culture Conference will explore advances of organ and lab-on-a-chip, microphysiological systems, applications of technology and case studies, imaging, high throughput screening and advances in 3D cell culture models which make up core components within the 3D Cell Culture field.
Bioprinting has become increasingly efficient and accurate in building in vitro tissue models with the potential to provide pathologically relevant responses and model human disease mechanisms. Bio-printed structures yield phenotypic endpoints that are comparable with clinical studies and can provide a realistic prediction of clinical efficacy. The use of bioprinting is growing in big pharma companies as an alternative to organ-on-a-chip systems.
For the first time ever the NEW 3D Bioprinting Focus Day on 18 February 2020 will explore case studies from big pharma, biotech’s and academia exploring how bioprinting is being used in industry highlighting projects looking at stem cell therapy, drug screening and extracellular matrix scaffolds.
