Pancreatic cancer is one of the most aggressive human malignanices with high lethality and poor prognosis. A promising approach for targeted optimisation of treatment of pancreatic cancer for a specific individual is the ex vivo modelling of an individual’s response to treatment. Tissue engineering offers a lot of potential on that direction. With the use of appropriate biomaterials and micro-architecture one can mimic tissue elements in a reproducible and low cost way, allowing ex vivo studies of standard and alternative treatments as well as the collection of important patient specific biological information related to treatment response. This talk is focusing on the application of different types of biomaterials and structures for screening of pancreatic cancer.

This talk is part of the Three-dimensional cell culture: Innovations in tissue scaffolds and biomimetic systems series.
