Intestinal Organoids Grow and Function Like Real Tissues

News

Bioengineers at EPFL have created miniature intestines in a dish that match up anatomically and functionally to the real thing better than any other lab-grown tissue models. The biological complexity and longevity of the new organoid technology is an important step towards enabling drug testing, personalized medicine, and perhaps, one day, transplantations.

Team Identifies Potential Pitfall in Emerging Treatment for Cancer and Inflammation

News

Whilst studying an emerging drug target in cancer and inflammation, researchers discovered the unintended activation of a protein called ERK5, this activation was due to the binding location of the inhibitors. ERK5 inhibitors that bound to the kinase domain of the protein led to the protein being shuttled to the cell nucleus and activated. Blocking ERK5 has therapeutic potential, but activating it could have undesirable consequences in terms of stimulated unwanted cell growth.
