The Conference

A Celebration of 3D Biology
Fri, Dec 3, 2021

To put new developments in 3D tissue biology in the limelight, MIMETAS organizes 3D-cember, a global live-streamed event on Friday, December 3, 2021.

3D tissue culture technologies and systems have come a long way over the last ten years. More and more scientists and physicians are embracing it. They want to tap into the enormous potential of 3D tissue culture for drug development, patient care, and fundamental science. Still, there’s a lot ahead of us with new biological applications and rapid technological innovations.

3D-cember: Live!
In Your (Home) Office


After the success of 2019's – in-person – edition of
3D-cember (in Amsterdam, Boston, and Tokyo), and last year's live-streamed edition, we are continuing it this year again as a digital event!  We’re embracing the fact that distance is no longer a barrier to enjoying great science these days and have put together a wonderful live-streamed global program for you.


One Event, Two Live-Streamed International Scientific Programs 
On Friday, December 3rd, 2021, we will kick-off the digital event with a live-streamed program 

for APAC (JST time zone), to further continue with a second live-streamed program for EU & US (CET & EST time zone).  


From the comfort of your home, office, or lab, you will be able to enjoy an inspiring scientific program 

that covers 3D tissue culture from a broad 
perspective, involving international key opinion leaders from pharma, biotech, and academia.

Last year's numbers







I truly enjoyed the diversity of researchers and themes but all going towards the importance of 3D tissue biology

On another note 3Dcember yesterday was fantastic! By far in a way the best produced virtual conference meeting I have seen to date! I look forward to next year’s meeting

Inspiring talks, amazing organisation, impressive digital environment
