Revolutionary cancer immunotherapies appear to alleviate Alzheimer’s symptoms in mice
In some ways, we biomedical engineers are really just control freaks. By designing our own small world in a dish, we can stage manage every aspect and push the boundaries in a way that’s not always possible in an animal model.
Now I have a lab of my own, I’ve found that the best research comes from finding the right collaborators.
Could the lab rat be heading for retirement? A new breed of in vitro tissues and organs are being engineered to replace animal models – and the developers aim to make them accessible to all.
Could cell-based synthetic circuits make pills and ointments a thing of the past for chronic disease?
Michela Gallagher was studying aging in lab rats when an unusual finding launched her on a translational journey that now sees her poised to initiate a Phase III trial of a drug to delay the onset of Alzheimer’s dementia.
