NEW DATE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we had to postpone the 3D Cell Culture 2020 conference previously scheduled 12-14 May 2020 (www.dechema.de/en/3DCC2020) to 2021.
The Call for Papers of 3DCC 2021 is open. Abstracts are welcome till 12 October. We hope to see you in good health at 3D Cell Culture 2021!
Warning notice: Currently there are emails in circulation of a possibly fake 3D Cell Culture summit in which potential speakers are being contacted. The senders are using unjustifiably the themes and titles of the programme of our 3D Cell Culture 2020 conference in their draft agenda design. Please be cautious.

3DCC 2021 conference
Freiburg im Breisgau, a lively city in the South-West of Germany is located in the heart of a famous wine-growing region and serves as the gate to the beautiful Black Forest. Freiburg is likewise known for its scenic old town and for its high standard of living and advanced environmental practices. The city houses one of the oldest and most renowned of German universities, the Albert Ludwig University of Freiburg, and a number of other research institutes like Max Planck and Fraunhofer. This combination of distinguished scientific reputation, attractive location and high quality of life makes Freiburg an ideal conference host city.
Are you planning to travel to Freiburg by train? Use the joint offer from Deutsche Bahn (DB) and DECHEMA and travel to our conference at a reduced fare starting from 49,50 € (one way). Please click here for more information.
The 3D Cell Culture 2021 conference will focus on advanced and predictive 3D cell culture models for the understanding of diseases and substance testing. This includes complex systems like multi-cell type models, multi-organ and microphysiological systems.
The successful development and application of 3D cell culture relies on innovative enabling technologies like new devices, printing and imaging technologies, analytical tools, high-throughput and automatisation.
A key question is the successful translation of models to clinical and industrial applications. What are the success stories? How can 3D models be used to predict therapies or to investigate infectious diseases? Where are the hurdles, also in the regulatory context?
In addition to scientific presentations, the exhibition will showcase practical applications, products and solutions and further stimulate discussion between researchers, solution providers and users.
The 3D Cell Culture conference is an initiative of the DECHEMA working groups “Cell Culture Technology” and “Medical Biotechnology”
in cooperation with
