A Scalable System to Design 3D Human Muscle Tissue for Drug Discovery, Upcoming Webinar Hosted by Xtalks
Guest speaker, Dr. Chris Hinckley of Biogen, will present some of Biogen’s recent data generated using the 3D modeling platform.
June 02, 2022
3D cell models and organ-on-chips are poised to add tremendous value to translational research. But these biologically complex systems typically require deep expertise and lack the throughput necessary for therapeutic discovery. For example, 3D modified muscle tissue has been shown to be more predictive of human responses in the dish compared to traditional 2D cell assays. This has sparked strong interest in adopting these 3D muscle models in preclinical and translational research. However, their complex implementation has remained an obstacle for many laboratories.
In this webinar, Curie Organic will present its Mantarray platform, which represents an easy-to-use, flexible and scalable system for generating high-throughput 3D muscle organoids with the ability to measure contractility (the innate ability of heart muscles to contract) in parallel. The platform offers a new method of 3D tissue casting that can be easily performed by almost any cell biology researcher and can be easily adapted to a variety of cell lines and extracellular matrices. Additionally, the platform’s new magnetic sensing modality allows contractility measurement of 24 tissues in parallel and in real time, while the cloud data analysis portal takes the guesswork out of analyzing and comparison of results between experiments.
Additionally, guest speaker Dr. Chris Hinckley of Biogen will present some of Biogen’s recent data generated using the 3D modeling platform.
Join this webinar to understand how these advanced 3D muscle models can be easily adapted for research and an appreciation of the utility of the platform for therapeutic discovery.
Join Dr. Shawn Luttrell, Principal Applications Researcher, Curi Bio; and Dr. Chris Hinckley, Scientist II, Biogen, for the live webinar Wednesday, June 22, 2022 at 1 p.m. EDT (10 a.m. PDT).
