Enabling technologies in 3D cancer organoids

march 8-9, 2016 Turin
Molecular Biotechnology Center
via Nizza 52

Why and who should attend

The meeting is focused on 3D cancer models and inaugurates a Cancer Conference Series co-organized by Università and Politecnico of Torino. The aim of this meeting is to bring together researchers from different fields to review recent advances on three-dimensional in vitro cultures for cancer research: development of cell spheroids and organoids, engineering of tissue scaffolds and materials, techniques to probe the mechanics of 3D cellular structures, as well as advanced imaging strategies.

The meeting should be of interest to all those who study cell and tumour biology, drug target validation and patient-tumour profiling, as well as tissue engineering and image-based approaches.
