Thank you to all those who attended the Launch Workshop (14th and 15th January 2019, The Liner hotel, Liverpool). We have had two hugely interactive days with a great mix of people, lectures, posters, technology showcase, lightning talks and thought provoking discussions. Here are some quick highlights…
If you were not able to attend, you can still join the discussion on Twitter #3DbioNet.
The key objectives of the workshop:
- Generate new ideas, collaborations and innovations to address the challenges in the field of 3D microtissues.
- To facilitate multidisciplinary consortia addressing the key issues identified.
- To shape the agenda of the network through engagement with industry, academia and other stakeholders.
- To advertise the funding priorities of the network.
