ÖGMBT and BOKU: Big interest in advanced cell culture technologies

On March 17, 2023 the workshop "Advanced Cell Culture Technologies" of the ÖGMBT Working Group "Cell based assays, therapies and products" took place at BOKU. Over 60 participants from more than 15 different cities and institutions met to learn and exchange information about the latest trends in cell culture technology.

The keynote lectures by PD Dr. Lavrentieva (Leibniz Universität Hannover) and Prof. Dr. Hansmann (Fraunhofer ISC, Würzburg) gave unique insights into advanced 3D cell culture technologies and the potential application of automation and artificial intelligence in research.

In inspiring discussion sessions on "Hydrogels in 3D Cell Culture", "Primary Cells of the Future", "Automation and Artificial Intelligence", "Monitoring of 3D Cell Culture Systems" and "Dynamic Culture Systems and Processes", participants exchanged views on current challenges in their research fields and discussed forward-looking approaches to solutions.

A very lively poster session in the afternoon rounded up the program and allowed for further   scientific exchange. We warmly congratulate the two winners of the poster award: Sonya Ciulean (Fraunhofer IZI, Leipzig) and Julia Moldaschl (BOKU).

Prof. Dr. Cornelia Kasper, Dr. Dominik Egger and Dr. Farhad Chariyev-Prinz, who organized the event on the part of BOKU with the support of ÖGMBT were very satisfied. "We received a lot of positive feedback about this format and we are very happy that we could offer a “live” workshop again after the long Corona break," said Prof. Kasper.
