Call for short proposals

Contributor: Amy J. Clippinger, PETA International Science Consortium Ltd.

The PETA International Science Consortium Ltd. (PISC) and MatTek Corporation are offering 3D reconstructed human tissue models – for free! MatTek’s human cell-based tissues—including dermal, ocular, respiratory, intestinal, oral, and vaginal models—are used for regulatory safety testing, product development, and basic research applications. Researchers who can use MatTek tissues in their work are invited to submit a brief (500 words or less) proposal for the manner in which they would use MatTek tissues in either a new application (open to all) or an existing application (open only to researchers who have not previously used MatTek products). In total, $15,000 worth of tissue models will be awarded. The application deadline is October 5, 2015. For application details, please visit http://www.piscltd.org.uk/mattek-prize/.
