Physiologically relevant models were, in recent history, thought of as the holy grail in life science research. However, with three-dimensional (3-D) cell culture models now better able to mimic in vivo conditions, living organism replicas are within sight.

 The ability of 3-D cultures to mimic the microenvironment of in vivo tissues sets the technique apart. Compared to 2-D cultures, cellular models containing three-dimensions better represent intricate cell-cell interactions, more closely resemble the exquisite nature of cellular communication, and have matrices that are analogous to in vivo structures.
