3D Cell Culture Conference


London, United Kingdom

Cell Culture in an important tool for research and development within the life science industry. Over the past few years, 3D Cell Culture has gained momentum within the pharmaceutical industry due to the benefits that this model offers over conventional cell culture methods. 3D cell culture enables cells to grow and interact with their surroundings in all three dimensions, better mimicking the in-vivo conditions in which the cells are naturally present. This enhances the ability for scientists to study basic biological mechanisms such as cell number monitoring, cell viability, proliferation and morphology. 3D cell cultures also have greater stability and longer life spans.

Researchers globally are realizing the potential of 3D cell culture for various applications, including testing and discovering new drugs to treat cancer, organ-on-chip models to study the human physiology in an organ specific context, and 3D cell printing to produce organ models. Therefore, this market is likely to grow over the next few years and is in fact projected to reach USD 1.7 Million by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 20.3% between 2017-2022. Growth in this market is also driven by global factors such as a need for alternative methods to animal resting, funding from governments and private entities and technological advancements in the field.

Join us in February 2019, as we look at the latest developments in the 3D Cell Culture field. Network with industry experts, gain insight into how the pharmaceutical industry is utilizing 3D Cell Culture technologies to enhance research and development, discuss the potential for novel in-vitro cell culture models to replace animal models, and discover novel 3D cell culture systems, organ-on-chip, 3D imaging of organoids and other technologies in development.


Benefits of Attending

The 3D Cell Culture field is rapidly evolving. Each year, new technologies are being developed, promoting exponential growth and development within the industry. Developing on last years' success, this must-attend conference will bring together industry experts to discuss and analyze the latest advancement and challenges within 3D Cell Culture.
