The Rise of 3D Cell Culture and <i>in vitro</i> Model Systems for Drug Discovery and Toxicology


Cell Culture Evolution – A Revolution for Drug Discovery


Two-dimensional cell cultures have played a role in the drug discovery and development process for decades, however in recent years three-dimensional (3D) cell culture has taken center stage. Here we take a look at the evolution of cell culture, the rise of 3D, and how the industry’s shift from “static” to “fluidic” is inspiring the next generation of in vitro models.


Novel Clinical Mass Spectrometry Applications: From Bench to Bedside


Mass spectrometry (MS) was once primarily within the chemist’s domain for molecular structural characterization. MS is now growing in familiarity and popularity for a variety of clinical applications; from laboratory tests for analyte quantification, to diagnostic applications in infectious disease, inborn errors of metabolism, and cancer, including a foray into the surgeon’s suite.


Inside a “Fake” Conference: A Journey Into Predatory Science


There is a growing underbelly of conferences that seem like the real thing but have none of the editorial standards expected by academics and have developed a reputation for advertising with fake agendas and high prices. These are "predatory conferences", named after the more well-known sister industry of "predatory publishing. A chance investigation took us inside a predatory conference and has uncovered how predatory science has ensnared scientists at every level.
