In this talk, Dr. Pampaloni will take us along on his scientific journey, which has moved from the flat world of 2D cell cultures to the three-dimensional organoids and spheroids. These „mini-organs“ bring us closer to mimicking real human tissues and allow to reduce the need for laboratory animals.
We are now in the middle of a mini "space race," where the laboratory bench extends into near Earth orbit and beyond. Dr. Pampaloni will give us a glimpse into what is coming. But, why should we care about doing biology in space? It is not just for the cool factor. We are talking about a new perspective to understand biology, health, and how to take care of our planet and our environment.
