Editorial Article: Free Webinar: Advanced 3D Cell Models for Cancer Biology Using Real Time Live-Cell Analysis

Learn how to obtain a detailed understanding of tumor growth using live-cell imaging of 3D cell models in our upcoming webinar

11 May 2018

In the search for greater clinical translation, cancer researchers are increasingly turning to more complex live-cell assay systems that recapitulate key aspects of the tumor microenvironment. These include (1) more relevant tissue organization, (2) bio-matrices containing structural proteins and growth factors, and (3) the presence of stromal and immune cells. 

In this upcoming educational webinar, expert industrial pharmacologist, Kalpana Patel, will discuss integrated protocols and live-cell analysis solutions for different 3D tumor models, ranging from simple mono-culture single spheroid assays through to multi-spheroid tumor/fibroblast and tumor/immune cell co-cultures in a Matrigel biomatrix. Patel is a principal scientist at Essen BioScience with over 20 years of experience in her field and a strong track record in drug discovery. She is now applying her expertise in developing cellular assays for quantitative live-cell analysis.



We’ll have a Q&A session after the webinar on Twitter. You can Tweet your questions using the hashtag #cancercellswebinar.
