We are delighted to invite you to the launch of the UCL Centre for 3D models of health and disease.
The Centre for 3D models of health and disease focuses on developing biomimetic tissue models to study fundamental tissue biology and the impact of disease progression on tissue form and function. We bio-engineer advanced tissue models and cover a range of tissues from skeletal muscle to tendon and skin. The centre also works on biomimetic models of cancer, which we term tumouroids, engineering distinct cancer masses within complex stromal compartments to study cancer invasion and metastasis. These models have been used to interrogate the actions of chemotherapeutic drugs and other therapeutic modalities.
The event will be held at Charles Bell House (UCL) in 43-45 Foley Street, London (W1W 7TS) on the 20th January 2020 from 11am to 3pm.
