SMi’s 3rd Annual Conference
3D Cell Culture
February 20-21, 2019 | London, United Kingdom
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cell Culture in an important tool for research and development within the life science industry. Over the past few years, 3D Cell Culture has gained momentum within the pharmaceutical industry due to the benefits that this model offers over conventional cell culture methods. 3D cell culture enables cells to grow and interact with their surroundings in all three dimensions, better mimicking the in-vivo conditions in which the cells are naturally present. This enhances the ability for scientists to study basic biological mechanisms such as cell number monitoring, cell viability, proliferation and morphology. 3D cell cultures also have greater stability and longer life spans.

Researchers globally are realizing the potential of 3D cell culture for various applications, including testing and discovering new drugs to treat cancer, organ-on-chip models to study the human physiology in an organ specific context, and 3D cell printing to produce organ models. Therefore, this market is likely to grow over the next few years and is in fact projected to reach USD 1.7 Million by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 20.3% between 2017-2022. Growth in this market is also driven by global factors such as a need for alternative methods to animal resting, funding from governments and private entities and technological advancements in the field.

Join us in February 2019, as we look at the latest developments in the 3D Cell Culture field. Network with industry experts, gain insight into how the pharmaceutical industry is utilizing 3D Cell Culture technologies to enhance research and development, discuss the potential for novel in-vitro cell culture models to replace animal models, hear from regulatory bodies, FDA and European Commissions Agency, on how regulatory bodies and researchers can work together, and discover novel 3D cell culture systems, organ-on-chip. 3D bioprinting and other technologies in development.
 

 

 

The 3D Cell Culture field is rapidly evolving. Each year, new technologies are being developed, promoting exponential growth and development within the industry. Developing on last years’ success, this must-attend conference will bring together industry experts to discuss and analyze the latest advancement and challenges within 3D Cell Culture.

At SMi’s 3rd Annual 3D Cell Culture Conference, you will gain insight into:

• Advantages and disadvantages of scaffold-based and scaffold-free technologies, as well as the synergistic use of both technologies to enhance the properties of 3D tissue
• Organ-on-chip technologies and their applications in the pharmaceutical industry
• Panel discussion on whether 3D Cell Culture will replace animal models
• Determining the predictive validity of 3D models and achieving standardization for preclinical testing
• Global developments in 3D Cell Culture and how this exponential growth will impact researchers
• Several novel techniques for imaging of 3D Cell Cultures
• Development of 3D eye models for early assessment of retinal toxicity

Competence Centre TEDD - The first centre of its kind. The continually rising numbers of compound failures leading to early withdrawals and the increasing cost of drug development are fuelling the demand for biologically more complex cell models. Here, physiological relevance is key for improving the predictive power of cell-based assays. 3D cell culture technology, organ-like tissue models and associated analytical tools are essential for basic and pharmaceutical research as well as for the evaluation of chemicals and cosmetics. The TEDD Competence Centre is a collaborative innovation platform, dedicated to 3D cell culture technology and organ-like tissue models for drug development, substance testing, personalized and regenerative medicine. Thus, TEDD also promotes the 3R of animal welfare with a particular emphasis on the third R, replace. As an information and matchmaking hub, TEDD transfers knowledge and technologies in order to promote the development and application of 3D cell culture. The TEDD community is currently composed of partners from academia, clinical medicine and industry. The industrial partners represent the majority of TEDD partners and comprise a spectrum from young spin-off company to world player. Thus, TEDD represents the entire value chain of biotech R&D relevant for 3D tissue engineering, be it ultra flat 3D monolayer culture, bioprinted tissue constructs, or organoids.

WHAT IS CPD?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development’. It is essentially a philosophy, which maintains that in order to be effective, learning should be organised and structured. The most common definition is:

‘A commitment to structured skills and knowledge enhancement for Personal or Professional competence’

CPD is a common requirement of individual membership with professional bodies and Institutes. Increasingly, employers also expect their staff to undertake regular CPD activities.

Undertaken over a period of time, CPD ensures that educational qualifications do not become obsolete, and allows for best practice and professional standards to be upheld.

CPD can be undertaken through a variety of learning activities including instructor led training courses, seminars and conferences, e:learning modules or structured reading.

CPD AND PROFESSIONAL INSTITUTES

There are approximately 470 institutes in the UK across all industry sectors, with a collective membership of circa 4 million professionals, and they all expect their members to undertake CPD.

For some institutes undertaking CPD is mandatory e.g. accountancy and law, and linked to a licence to practice, for others it’s obligatory. By ensuring that their members undertake CPD, the professional bodies seek to ensure that professional standards, legislative awareness and ethical practices are maintained.

CPD Schemes often run over the period of a year and the institutes generally provide online tools for their members to record and reflect on their CPD activities.

TYPICAL CPD SCHEMES AND RECORDING OF CPD (CPD points and hours)

Professional bodies and Institutes CPD schemes are either structured as ‘Input’ or ‘Output’ based.

‘Input’ based schemes list a precise number of CPD hours that individuals must achieve within a given time period. These schemes can also use different ‘currencies’ such as points, merits, units or credits, where an individual must accumulate the number required. These currencies are usually based on time i.e. 1 CPD point = 1 hour of learning.

‘Output’ based schemes are learner centred. They require individuals to set learning goals that align to professional competencies, or personal development objectives. These schemes also list different ways to achieve the learning goals e.g. training courses, seminars or e:learning, which enables an individual to complete their CPD through their preferred mode of learning.

The majority of Input and Output based schemes actively encourage individuals to seek appropriate CPD activities independently.

As a formal provider of CPD certified activities, SMI Group can provide an indication of the learning benefit gained and the typical completion. However, it is ultimately the responsibility of the delegate to evaluate their learning, and record it correctly in line with their professional body’s or employers requirements.

GLOBAL CPD

Increasingly, international and emerging markets are ‘professionalising’ their workforces and looking to the UK to benchmark educational standards. The undertaking of CPD is now increasingly expected of any individual employed within today’s global marketplace.
