The growing push for 3D cell culture models is limited by technical challenges in handling, processing, and scalability to high-throughput applications. To meet these challenges, we use our platform, magnetic 3D bioprinting, in which cells are individually magnetized and assembled with magnetic forces. In magnetizing cells, not only do we make routine cell culture and experiments feasible and scalable, but we also gain fine spatial control in the formation of spheroids and more complex structures. This presentation will focus on recent developments using this platform, particularly in cancer biology and immunology.
Learning objectives: 1. General technique of magnetic 3D cell culture and magnetic 3D Bioprinting 2. Key advantages of 3D cell culture over other techniques 3. Broad applications of 3D cell culture 4. Applications in immunobiology and immunobiology 5. Comparison between magnetic 3D cell culture and in vivo results in collaboration with MD Anderson Cancer Center
