Advanced Cell Models – Highlights
Advances in Spheroid and Organoid Engineering and Applications
In this article, we look at some recent advances and applications and where the field of three-dimensional tissue culture is heading.
Organoids – Revolutionizing the Study of Human Development and Disease
Often referred to as “mini-organs”, organoids are tiny self-organizing 3D assemblies of cells which show some physiological features of a specific organ. As an intermediate between traditional 2D in vitro cell cultures and animal models, organoids are a useful tool for several applications.
An Introduction to Organoids, Organoid Creation, Culture and Applications
Organoids have revolutionized biological and medical research and proven to be excellent substitutes for animal models in preclinical studies. Here, we discuss what organoids are and how they have been developed over the years to become popular research tools.
How Organoids Are Fueling Infectious Disease Research and Personalized Medicine
In this article, we discuss organoids in the context of personalized medicine and infectious disease and explore how they provide a new window into disease and fuel the discovery of new therapeutics.
Passage of the FDA Modernization Act Enables New Era for Preclinical Testing
The 11th-hour passage of The FDA Modernization Act gave a much-needed boost to the advocates of new alternative methods (NAMs) for preclinical testing. In this article, we take a look at why NAMs are needed and what the new legislation means for pharmaceutical companies.
Life Captured in Unprecedented Detail by Gigapixel 3D Microscope
A new gigapixel 3D microscope has been designed to capture images and videos with unprecedented detail, revealing new insights into zebrafish and fruit fly behavior.
Gut Bacteria Are Crucial for Liver Repair
When parts of the liver are removed, the body can replace the missing tissue. A team of researchers has now discovered that the success of this process depends to a large extent on gut bacteria.
Brain Cell-Powered Computers Could Be the Future of AI
Biological computers powered by brain cells could surpass today's electronic computers for certain applications, say researchers.
