Human 3D Tissue Models:
3R in the Light of Drug Development
An improvement in the ability to predict drug failures before clinical trials could save much money in drug development. For medical devices, more and more (pre)clinical studies are required according to the new medical device regulation (MDR). One of the most promising technologies to tackle both those challenges could be three-dimensional human tissue models.
To provide a platform to discuss the boundaries and opportunities of such models as an alternative to animal testing, Forum MedTech Pharma, together with Fraunhofer ISC, presents the Conference "Human 3D Tissue Models: 3R in the Light of Pharma Development and MDR".
At the conference, representatives of research institutes, clinics and industry will present novel human 3D tissue models and test systems, applied in pharma research and development as well as for medical device testing. Upcoming technologies such as Bio-Printing or Organ-on-a-Chip will also be demonstrated. Industrial and clinical users will formulate their needs as prerequisite for a yet broader application of such models. The opportunities and boundaries of those models as an alternative to animal testing as well as regulatory aspects will be discussed.
