Associate Professor Guangwei Sun in 1802 group presented a lecture with the title of “Three-dimensional culture--- in vitro 3D tissue-like construction”. She introduced the formation of 3D tissue-like structure generated by means of biomaterials. Furthermore, she also introduced the potential application of 3D culture in the fields of cancer research, high throughput screening drug, artificial organs. After the report, principal Li had conducted extensive academic exchange on the role of 3D tissue-like model in cancer research and anti-cancer drug screening and the cooperation in the development of new anti-cancer drugs and targeting drug delivery with researchers in 1802 group.
