Researchers from the United Kingdom hope that a new, publicly available database they have created will shrink, not grow, over time.

Researchers from the Organoid group (Hubrecht Institute, Utrecht University)) and the Princess Máxima Center (Utrecht, The Netherlands) have taken steps to advance cancer tumour models by using base editors to simultaneously introduce multiple cancer-related mutations into healthy organoids. They thereby succeeded in efficiently making tumour organoids that model liver, colorectal and endometrial cancer. The results […]
Scientists have developed a synthetic extracellular matrix (ECM) that can support the growth of a mini endometrium in a dish for at least two weeks.
Scientific excellence requires diversity – research conducted by men and women, by people from different backgrounds and with varied worldviews. The need for diversity extends to scientific experiments themselves, but even today the vast majority of studies in the life sciences are done on male mice only, which could harm the findings, as well as […]

by Dr James McCracken Most of us will have some sort of knowledge or experience of flow cytometers, even if it’s just at the level of knowing that they are large instruments that have their own lab space and a dedicated team of people to run them and that they usually seem to be used […]
