Overview


Cells, tissues, and organs function in a 3-D environment. Ideally, cell-based models that capture both the 3-D organization and multicellular complexity of the target system provide the most powerful tools for screening the effects of therapeutic candidates. This meeting bridges tissue engineers who are constructing the 3-D models with biologists who are studying healthy vs. diseased states and pharmacologists who are developing high throughput screening assays. As with 3-D biological models, each specialty provides insight into the complete system. CHI's 2nd Annual Tissue Models for Therapeutics is a pharmaceutical conference where the attendees you meet are as important as the faculty
