Speaker interview MRC Harwell Institute released for SMi's 3D Cell Culture
SMi Reports: Alexander D. Graham's interview released for SMi's 3D Cell Culture Conference, taking place in February 2020 in London.
By: SMi Group
The conference will entail a comprehensive session on all areas regarding 3D Cell Culture such as: the potential of 3D cell culture for various applications, including models for personalized medicine, complex and multi-cell type models, translation and clinical and industrial applications and many more.
For those interested in attending, places are limited. Register at www.3D-cellculture.com/
SMi Group has caught up with Alexander D. Graham, Investigator Scientist,
MRC Harwell Institute to discuss his views and expectations for the forthcoming conference.
Snapshot of Alexander's interview:
The 3D Cell Culture market has matured greatly over recent years, what key differences have you noticed in the last year regarding significant developments?
"There has been a significant increase in the extent and diversity of research on 3D cell cultures as models of human physiology. In particular, great strives have been made towards using organoids as disease tissue models to study disease mechanisms and to predict treatment benefits. In the last year successful models have been generated from biobanks of patient biopsies and certain patient-derived models have displayed similar in vitro responses to clinical responses. In addition, more research has focused on co-cultures including the incorporation of immune cells and microbiomes, with evidence showing that their incorporation can influence cell behaviour and differentiation. Such model systems can provide a platform to study pathogenic infections providing new insights into key mechanisms of tissue immunity and subsequent medical treatments."
