Recently, the Chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) model raised high attention in the field of tumor biology, imaging and cytotoxicity research as it provides an attractive alternative animal model with respect to the 3R guidelines. We would like to discuss interesting and novel applications, the pros and cons of the model as well as assay standardization and current rules and regulations. We expect an exciting virtual meeting encouraging all aspects of this model system
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Researchers who are interested in an alternative model system that is fast, at low costs, reliable, 3R, and very broad in its applications. The conference is also announced as a COST training school, so you can expect many educationals.
SPECIFIC TOPICS COVERED
CAM model in cancer research, angiogenesis, imaging, patient-derived xenografts (PDX), ex ovo applications, 3R aspect (CAM versus mouse xenografts), rules and regulations
Free for everbody, but if you would like to support our work, you can choose a sponsor package during the registration process
