Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Inaugural 

3D Cell Culture: Organoid, Spheroid, and Organ-on-a-Chip Models 

Physiologically-Relevant 3D Models for Drug Discovery and Toxicity Assessment

   November 9-10, 2015 | Renaissance Waterfront Hotel | Boston, MA

Physiologically relevant complex cellular models that are predictive of human response are needed to improve drug discovery and toxicity testing in order to reduce costly late-stage attrition. 3D cell models have the ability to create tissue-specific structure and function, allowing more predictive in vitro assays. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Inaugural 3D Cell Culture meeting will cover the latest advances in tissue engineering and assay development for organoid, spheroid, and organ-on-a-chip models, including their applications in efficacy and safety screening, functional analysis, and compound de-risking. Coverage will include primary and stem cell models, complex co-culture cell models, tumor spheroid models, novel organ-on-a-chip models, and more.

Topics include:

  • Assay development for 3D cell culture
  • Use of primary and iPS cells in drug screening
  • Organoid models for toxicity screening
  • Bioprinting
  • Tissue and stem cell organoid models
  • Complex co-culture models
  • Physiologically relevant spheroid models
  • Organ-on-a-chip models
  • 3D models of tumor microenvironment
  • Tumor spheroid models for screening
  • Tissue engineering applied to 3D models

The deadline for priority consideration is Friday, May 29, 2015.
