Webinar: Pioneering organoids and 3D cell cultures for animal and human health

16 April 2024
About this webinar

Organoids and 3D cell cultures are a fascinating area of research, with the aim of developing in vitro systems recapitulating in vivo biological processes. Recent years have seen substantial progress, with the development of organoids for different tissues and across species. They show promise to replace and reduce animal use for research, an area with substantial societal impact. This webinar will highlight latest findings by talks from invited speakers and abstracts, covering different culture systems and species.

The webinar is organised by the BSI Comparative and Veterinary Immunology Affinity Group (CVIG), with support from The Pirbright Institute.
