2019 Conference Agenda

Thursday, April 25, 2019

Preliminary Agenda

This year, we are bringing together an impressive line-up of speakers who will share their visions for how we can bring the bench closer to the bedside with emerging 3D cell technologies. We are reserving at least one podium presentation for a conference registrant. If you would like to share your innovative 3D cell-based research with the group,  please submit a presentation abstract when you register for the conference. To be considered for a podium presentation, you must submit your abstract before March 25, 2019.  The final agenda will be published on this page on April 15, 2019.
