Harnessing the Power of 3D Spheroids in Cancer Research

Presented by

Roxana Ghadessy, Ph.D. and Fiona Chang, Ph.D.

About this talk

In this joint webinar, Corning and Promega will present tools and solutions to support the continuous evolution of the spheroid model in 3D cell culture applications. Learn about how culture platforms optimized for single spheroid analysis or mass spheroid production can be coupled with novel real-time cell health assays and total RNA purification techniques. Furthermore, learn how to expand the spheroid workflow with downstream analysis of miRNA effects in cancer cell growth and metastasis. 1.
