A cell culture substrate has a microstructured, plate-like body with a plurality of depressions mutually separated by webs for receiving cells or cell aggregates. Their largest diameter and their depth is always a multiple of the diameter of the cells or cell aggregates. The depressions have at their bottom at least one opening that is smaller than the smallest cell or cell aggregate to be received in the depressions. Also disclosed is a cell culture developed on such a substrate. The object of the invention is to obtain a substrate that makes it possible to develop a three-dimensional cell culture.
