Abstract 3-D cell cultures, such as organoids and spheroids, can be generated from either adult stem cells or pluripotent stem cells. Compared with traditional 2-D cultures, 3-D cell cultures have multiple advantages. 3-D cell cultures allows cells to grow and assemble in three dimensions, which recapitulates physiologic cellular composition and behaviors more accurately.

Because 3-D cell cultures can mimic in vivo environment and reduce experimental complexity, it has been applied widely into basic biology, regenerative medicine, and personalized medicine. Especially, it enables the studies of human developmental processes and diseases that are not easily characterized in animal models.

With the growing use of 3-D cell cultures, Bio-Techne is proud to present the seminar on 3-D cultures/ Organoids. He will discuss the common platforms of 3-D cell culture technology and its applications in development, pathogenesis and translational medicine.
