New Frontiers in 3D Cell Technologies

Fostering discussion of transformative 3D in vitro cell technologies  from advanced disease modeling to organ-on-a-chip solutions

Virtual KOL Roundtables ●  In-person and Digital Symposia ●  Curated 3D In Vitro News Digests

Are you ready for the future of preclinical drug testing?

Organ on a chip systems | scalable 3D disease modeling platforms | animal testing alternatives | highly predictive drug safety screening

Join the conversion.  Help shape the future.

New Frontiers in 3D Technologies is going digital!  This year we’re introducing a virtual roundtable series featuring key opinion leaders who are on a mission to transform drug discovery and safety testing. We’re also planning a virtual symposium that will bring together pharma and biotech thought-leaders, research scientists, and regulatory experts to discuss innovative new 3D cell technologies for drug efficacy and safety testing.  To help you stay informed about movers and shakers in 3D, we’ve launched a curated news digest focused on 3D in vitro breakthroughs.  Our aim is to make it easy and convenient for us all to stay in touch and stay informed during this pandemic and beyond. 

  • Learn about practical applications for the latest generation of 3D in vitro models that have successfully transitioned from R&D evaluations to indispensable for everyday use in industry
  • Discuss 3D technology trends and real-world implementation challenges
  • Discover disease modeling platforms, assay strategies, and readout techniques that could transform how your organization does drug discovery and development
  • Debate how best to apply emerging tools for organ-on-a-chip systems.
  • Network with influencers in the fields of metabolic disease, oncology, and toxicology
  • Share how you are applying 3D cell-based technology in your work by submitting an abstract for a poster or oral presentation.
