  • Tokyo: Blood vessel-on-a-chips show anti-cancer drug effects in human cells
    Researchers at the Institute of Industrial Science (IIS), the University of Tokyo, CNRS and INSERM, report a new organ-on-a-chip technology for the study of blood vessel formation and drugs targeting this event. The technology recreates a human blood vessel and shows how new capillaries grow from a single vessel (parent vessel) in response to proper biochemical signaling cues.

  • First step towards in generating artificial adrenal gland
    A team of researchers from the William Harvey Research Institute at Queen Mary University of London has succeeded in gaining cells from urine, transforming them into induced pluripotent stem cells and converting them into a Kind of artificial adrenal gland with steroid-producing cells. The model could be used in investigations of possible treatments for adrenal diseases such as adrenal insufficiency.

  • New PDMS combination for D3 printing
    Scientists from the PennState University, Pennsylvania, have collaborated with researchers from the Cukurova University in Adana, Türkey, to mix two different polydimethylsiloxane elastomers. Using the substance combination they are able to create three-dimensional objects for organ-on-a-chip systems. This is especially interesting for smallest structures from the 3D Printer.
