SMi is proud to announce the 3rd Annual 3D Cell Culture conference is returning to London in just under two weeks’ time.

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.
For this reason, SMi is delighted to host an exclusive conference on 3D Cell Culture taking place on 20 and 21 February 2019 in London, opening its doors to an elite audience of scientific leaders pioneering this technique.

The key benefits of attending 3D Cell Culture 2019 conference include:

• Remote spotlight session on Tools, not toys: from innovation to regulatory application with William Mattes, Director, Division of System Biology, U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
• Learn in the spotlight session from Asli Akidil, Cell & Molecular Scientist at AstraZeneca on Automated confocal imaging and analysis process for liver-on-a-chip platform
• Gain insights into how the global developments in 3D cell culture will replace animal models a panel discussion with GSK, Novo Nordisk and the University of Durham
• Hear the spotlight session on developing translationally relevant 3D models for pre-clinical drug development, presented by Jason Ekert, Head of Complex In Vitro Models at GlaxoSmithKline
• Explore the use of musculoskeletal regeneration harnessing preclinical models for tissue repair with Richard Oreffo, Director, Centre of Human Development at University of Southampton
• Discover the development of 3D eye models for early assessment of retinal toxicity with Philip Hewit, Head of Early Investigative Toxicology at Merck
• Meet and and greet our sponsors exhibiting including CelVivo, InoCure, Jellagen, Molecular Devices, Promega & TEDD
