How close to in vivo can we get? Get updated about 3D cell cultures as predictive, physiological relevant model systems! Since our first symposium in 2009, the 3D Cell Culture conference series has developed into a ‘place to be’ for experts active in this field, and will highlight successful applications and newest developments. Success stories of 3D culture applications will be presented as well as newest technologies and innovations. Relevant disease models, applications of 3D models in clinic and industry, predictive cell models for compound characterization and enabling technologies will be covered.
