3D Cell Culture Approaches of Microphysiological Relevant Models

DEADLINE EXTENDED! Proposals now accepted until Tuesday, June 15

Submit Proposals here

SLAS Discovery

SLAS Discovery/Technology Guest Editors Timothy P. Spicer, Ph.D. (Scripps Research) and Glauco R. Souza, Ph.D. (Greiner Bio-One) invite the submission of abstracts on 3D Cell Culture Approaches of Microphysiological Relevant Models for publication in a 2022 Special Issue. Manuscript proposals (abstracts) will be used to select and invite papers for review and publication consideration. All manuscripts published as part of this special issue will be peer-reviewed but will also receive SAGE Choice coverage to make them freely available to the worldwide public.

Drs. Spicer and Souza seek high-quality, short- or full-length research reports, reviews, and perspectives related to approaches that address the use of 3D cell culture models that reflect physiologically relevant in vivo models. Manuscript proposals (abstracts) are welcome from academia, industry, and vendors. Areas of particular interest include, but are not limited to:

  • 3D cell culture for drug discovery using cell aggregates, organoids, and micro-tissue
  • HTS methods for cancer, neurological, cardiovascular or other disease models using 3D cell culture
  • Approaches using 3D models that have the potential to limit the use of animals in research
  • Application of discovery technologies for manipulating and imaging 3D cell culture
  • 3D cell culture approaches directed at personalized medicine
  • Validation of molecular targets using 3D cell culture

Submit your manuscript proposal before June 15, 2021.

  1. Submit a working title and abstract (250-500 words) as an MS Word document.
  2. Include your name, affiliation and contact info in the text of the e-mail and in your MS Word document.

Invited manuscripts to be included in the special issue will need to be completed and submitted by August 1, 2021. All submitted papers will be subject to peer-review to ensure scientific rigor, clarity of expression and integration with other contributions in the SLAS Discovery special issue. Submissions from SLAS members, nonmembers and especially attendees of the SLAS Advanced 3D Human Models and High-Content Analysis Symposium 2021 are welcome.

Publication note: After submissions are accepted, they typically publish online ahead of print within 30 days and become immediately searchable and citable with a DOI.

SLAS Technology

SLAS Technology Guest Editor Lih Feng Cheow, Ph.D. (National University of Singapore) invites the submission of abstracts for the 2022 special issue, "Single-Cell Analysis Technologies for Biomedical Research." Manuscript proposals (abstracts) will be used to select and invite papers for review and publication consideration.

Dr. Cheow seeks high-quality, short- or full-length research reports, reviews, and perspectives related to novel technologies for analyzing different aspects (e.g., genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic, epigenomic, phenotypic) of single cells, and their applications in biomedical research. Abstracts are welcome from academia, industry, and vendors. Areas of particular interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Technologies for single-cell molecular analysis (e.g., genomic, transcriptomic, epigenomic, proteomics, metabolomics)
  • Technologies for single-cell functional analysis (e.g., cell-cell interactions, enzymatic activities)
  • Physical measurements of single cells (e.g., mechanical, electrical properties)
  • Technologies for sorting single cells (e.g., optical, electrical, acoustics)
  • Integrated platforms for single-cell processing (e.g., cell isolation, manipulation, microwell and droplet devices for single-cell assays)
  • Single-cell screening platforms (e.g., drug screening, CRISPR, antibody secretion)
  • Non-mammalian cells (e.g., plant, bacteria)
  • Applications of single-cell analysis (e.g., understanding about disease, diagnostics)

Submit your manuscript proposal before June 15, 2021.

  1. Submit a working title and abstract (250-500 words) as an MS Word document.
  2. Include your name, affiliation and contact info in the text of the e-mail and in your MS Word document.

Invited manuscripts will need to be completed and submitted by August 1, 2021. All submitted papers will be subject to peer-review to ensure scientific rigor, clarity of expression and integration with other contributions in the SLAS Technology Special Issue.

Publication note: After submissions are accepted, they typically publish online ahead of print within 30 days and become immediately searchable and citable with a DOI.
