The training sessions offered by BioLab foster collaboration in the cancer research community and provide a place to share experiences, build new collaborations and drive cancer research forward.

Magnetic 3D Bioprinting of Cells

BioLab at the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research (OICR) is hosting educational an seminar on: Magnetic 3D Bioprinting of Cells: an advance platform for developing organoid tumor models for high-throughput functional studies and drug screening on Wednesday, July 24, 2019, from 2 – 3:30 p.m. at OICR.

In this free educational event experts from Greiner Bio-One and BioTek will introduce the latest advances in 3D cell culture model techniques, tools, and imaging modalities, and discuss their applications for functional studies and drug screening.


With the advent of cost-effective, high-throughput 3D cell culture models, 3D CCMs spheroids, organoids, microtissues, and organs-on-a-chip), and rising demand for personalized therapies and drug screening, innovative in vitro predictive models using patient-derived cells are becoming very attractive.
