High-throughput platform for predicting kidney toxicity is part of new international collaboration between Singapore researchers and US EPA to advance non-animal approaches to chemical safety testing

Researchers from the Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology and the Bioinformatics Institute at the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) in Singapore have reported significant breakthroughs in the development of an animal-free approach for predicting the toxicity of drugs and other substances to the human kidney (i.e., nephrotoxicity). The proximal tubule cells (PTCs) of […]

Stem cells form human mini-lung organoids

Organoids are in vitro organ models generated by the self-assembly of cells (likely to be stem cells or induced pluripotent stem cells) into small tissues that replicate some of the 3-dimensional (3-D) cellular and structural complexity of the in vivo tissue/organ. The growing interest in generating organoids as research and testing models was reviewed in […]
