Event Details

From bench to applications
Get updated about 3D cell culture as predictive model systems and the translation from models to applications!
The conference will highlight latest developments in the field from research and application:

  • Advanced cell culture models for understanding of diseases and substance testing, including complex and mult-cell type models as well as models for personalized medicine and in vitro application of patient-derived tissues.
  • Translation, clinical and inustrial applications: How can models be turned into solutions? Success stories and current developments both for clinical and industrial applications will be presented. What regulatory aspects need to be considered, and where are the current gaps between 3D models and clinic?
  • Innovative enabling technologies:* The successful development and application of 3D cell culture relies on innovative, advanced analytics and specific assay developments as well as imaging technologies. Bioinformatics, systems biology and modelling enable the targeted development of 3D cell culture that can be used in new devices or even 3D printed. High-throughput and automatization allow for shorter time-to-markets.

Call for paper is open – submit your contribution until 4 October 2019!

Since our first symposium in 2009, the 3D Cell Culture conference series has developed into a ‘place to be’ for experts in this field. 3DCC2020 will highlight newest developments and the translation of models to applications. Success stories and trends like 3D models for personalized medicine will be presented as well as innovative technologies. Relevant disease models, applications of 3D models in clinic and industry, predictive cell models for compound characterization, safety and toxicity testing, and a range of enabling technologies will be covered.
In addition to scientific presentations, the exhibition will showcase practical applications, products and solutions and further stimulate discussion between researchers, solution providers and users.
