3D Tumor Drug Screening Models Boost Oncology Research
May 24, 2021

For many decades, oncology research and drug screening programs have relied upon 2D or monolayer culture systems of established tumor cell lines. Unfortunately, these flat biology or homogenous tumor models do not represent the complex cell-cell and cell-matrix biology that are found in cancer patients.

How to Overcome Common Challenges with Stem Cells
Mar 15, 2021

One of the most promising advances in science has been the use of stem cells in research and the treatment of disease. In general, stem cells are cells that can be programmed to differentiate into many different types of cells. They also have the ability to “renew” or make copies of themselves.
