ABOUT

.

The majority of cells in living tissue grow in a three-dimensional microenvironment, where they communicate and interact with each other and their surroundings. Animal cells are embedded in the extracellular matrix (ECM), which is composed of proteoglycans and fibrous proteins (mainly collagen, elastin, and fibronectin). This complex, dynamic, and tissue-specific 3D structure provides physical scaffolding for the cells and initiates cues that influence cell differentiation and behaviour.

.

While widely accepted in the research field, cells cultured in a traditional, two-dimensional in vitro environment has its limitations for studying complex systems. Cells behave differently inside a 3D gel matrix compared to a 2D environment. In many cases, a 3D environment reflects the in vivo situation more accurately. This should be considered when analysing cell behaviour, differentiation, response to drug treatment, and gene and protein expression.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
.

On this 3D Cell Models micro-course, you will:

1. Understand the workflow of cultivating 3D Cell Models

.

2. Learn best practices for imaging 3D Cell Models

.

3. Gain knowledge about the solutions for cultivating and imaging 3D Cell Models

.

In the lectures of this 3D cell models micro-course, you will learn from our expert instructors how to establish, culture, and image 3D cell models. You will discover the state-of-the-art of 3D cell model technology and learn all the theory you need to design your experiments.

Participants will take part in interactive Q&A clinics with leading scientists in the 3D cell model field. They will answer any questions you have about your individual projects and help you to avoid the common pitfalls of 3D cell models experiments.

You will have the opportunity to share your own images of 3D cell models to support any challenges you may be experiencing in the lab.
