The past decades have witnessed significant efforts toward the development of three-dimensional (3D) cell cultures. Today, 3D cell cultures are emerging not only as a new tool in early drug discovery, but also as potential therapeutics to treat disease.

In this episode, we discuss: 3D cell culture in drug discovery; advances in hydrogels and scaffolds for creation of spheroids and organoids; a novel approach to cell therapy; what the future may hold: bioprinting and organ-on-chip; and finally limitations and commercial implications.

The original article this episode is based on was written by Hannah Gitschier, Dr Ye Fang and Dr Richard M. Eglen. If you'd like to view the original article then follow the link below:
