Summer 2018

In the spotlight for the Summer edition are three great interviews with leading researchers, funding bodies and opinion leaders on the development of in-vitro human relevant 3D models as an alternative to animal studies: Dr. Phil Stephens from the Cardiff University , Dr. Tuula Heinonen from the Finnish Centre for Alternative Methods to Animal Experimentation (FICAM) and CEO Carla Owen from the Animal Free Research UK.

In this edition we also open the 2018 image competition to entries and announce the dates for the 4th Annual Visions for 3D Cell Culture Conference in Helsinki, Finland. Invitations will be sent out in August, but for early bird registration (free) or interest in presenting contact us at growdex@upm.com.
