Innovative 3D drug screening system
Research project to develop a 3D screening system to cultivate tissue and automatically stimulate and quantify its mechanical properties
11-May-2023 - Professor Timo Betz, University of Göttingen, has been awarded a Proof of Concept (PoC) grant by the European Research Council (ERC) for his “TissMec” project to develop a 3D screening system to cultivate tissue and automatically stimulate and quantify its mechanical properties. PoC ERC grants ...
How can we fight blood cancer more effectively?
Several hundred different treatment combinations to be tested simultaneously outside the body
02-May-2023 - Despite approved treatments being available, multiple myeloma remains incurable. But researchers at ETH Zurich and University Hospital Zurich set out to improve treatment outcomes by testing hundreds of existing therapeutics outside the body to predict their effectiveness. Multiple myeloma is a ...
Simplified screening of individual bacterial species in biosamples
Method saves time and costs when analysing complex microbiological samples
30-Mar-2023 - In medical research and diagnostics, the microbiome, i.e. the microbial colonisation of the intestine, is increasingly gaining attention. A stool sample can be used to precisely analyse the complex microbial ecosystem of the gut. There are basically two methods for this: traditional cultivation ...
Discovering New Cancer Treatments in the “Dark Matter” of the Human Genome
New tool determines potential targets
10-Oct-2022 - Researchers of the University of Bern and the Insel Hospital, University Hospital Bern, have developed a screening method to discover new drug targets for cancer treatment in the so-called “Dark Matter” of the genome. They applied their method to non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), the greatest ...
Drug Testing with Artificial Brain Vessels
Screening method simulates filter effect of the “blood-brain barrier”
05-Sep-2022 - In the journal “Biomaterials”, DZNE researchers present a novel method for testing chemical agents that could help in the development of drugs against neurodegenerative diseases. This analytical technique allows to study in the laboratory whether new drug candidates have a realistic chance of ...
Study identifies new dementia risk genes through novel testing approach
Mass screening of genetic variants in a single experiment
25-Aug-2022 - A new UCLA-led study has identified multiple new risk genes for Alzheimer’s disease and a rare, related brain disorder called progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) by using a combination of new testing methods allowing for mass screening of genetic variants in a single experiment. The study, ...
