Europe 3D-Culture, Organoids & Tox Screening Conference: Rotterdam, Netherlands - June 13th-14th, 2019


Dublin, Feb. 19, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "3D-Culture, Organoids & Tox Screening Europe" conference has been added to's offering.

3D-Culture, Organoids & Tox Screening Europe 2019 brings together researchers from around the world focusing on the emerging technologies and applications of 3D-culture and organoids, especially as they are impacting drug discovery, toxicity screening and drug development processes.

Hear from and network with researchers who are currently screening for efficacy and toxicity using iPS cell lines (and cells derived thereof), and those responsible for developing the techniques and technologies in the organoids field. There will also be discussions on industry and regulatory developments that are shaping the future of 3D-culture and technologies for studying organoids in cancer research and beyond.

Topics to be covered include 3D-cell based screening methods, high content screening and data management, the use of model organisms and novel approaches for phenotypic screening.

Key Opinion Leaders from around the World are Participating at this Conference allowing Maximal Information Exchange and Unparalleled Networking Opportunities.
