When developing diagnostic tests or evaluating results, it is important to understand how reliable those tests and therefore the results you are obtaining are. By using samples of known disease status, values such as sensitivity and specificity can be calculated that allow you to evaluate just that.

A Further Dimension to Drug Discovery: Combining 3D Culture With iPSCs

Article

Running in parallel with advances in 3D cell culture is the growing use of human cells derived from induced pluripotent stem cells. Researchers are interested in testing drugs in the most physiologically relevant models possible, so, it was only a matter of time before these two approaches converged – providing optimized systems for disease modeling and drug toxicity testing.

New Neurons Until Ninety: Discovering Neurogenesis in the Adult Hippocampus

Article

Far from being a process that ends in maturity, a new study has found that the adult human brain is capable of producing new neurons until the tenth decade of life. This ability is substantially impaired in the brains of people with Alzheimer’s Disease (AD), which researchers say could help predict the onset of AD.
