In an effort to improve in vitro biology, tremendous progress has been made over the past decade in integrating cells into 3D dimensional configurations. While the various technologies for fabricating micro-physiology have improved significantly, the choice of the right cell type for each application remains. Cells as the building blocks for a 3D tissue model are an important determinant of its biological relevance. Here, I will present the current status to use patient-specific primary tumor cells as building blocks for 3D tumor models.
