LONDON - Oct. 15, 2019 - PRLog -- SMi Group is delighted to announce the return of the successful 3D Cell Culture Conference for its 4th year, on 19th and 20th February 2020 in London. Over the past few years, 3D Cell Culture has gained momentum within the pharmaceutical industry due to the benefits that this model offers for in vitro applications patient-derived tissues, drug discovery, predictivity and validation, safety and toxicity.

The two-day agenda will focus on 'Development and application of human organs and tissues in vitro' which explores advances of organ and lab-on-a-chip, microphysiological systems, applications of technology and case studies, imaging, high throughput screening and advances in 3D cell culture models which make up core components within the 3D Cell Culture field.

This year, the conference will be co-chaired by Philip Hewitt, UK and Eurotox Registered Toxicologist, Global Head of Early Investigative Toxicology, Merck Healthcare KGaA and Stefan Przyborski, Professor of Cell Technology, Durham University

For those interested in attending, there is an early bird offer with £400 savings for bookings made by 31st October,
