SMi’s 5th Annual 3D Cell Culture Conference

10 February 2021 09:00 - 11 February 2021 17:00, United Kingdom

3D Cell Culture is gaining momentum in the pharmaceutical industry, with the global 3D Cell Culture market predicted to surpass a value of $3.2 Billion by 2027. Researchers globally are realising the potential of in vitro applications for drug discovery, predictivity and validation, safety, and toxicity.
SMi’s 5th Annual 3D Cell Culture Conference will be covering the application of 3D cell culture to drug development, toxicity testing, and safety assurance. In addition, the conference will look into the newest breakthroughs in Organ Chip technology, 3D Multicellular scaffolding, Microphysiological Systems, and 3D Bioprinting. In recent years technological advances have made these technologies viable and accessible in scientific application.
