Owner/Developer: FSRM (FSRM)
01 June 2018
To provide a state of the art review of current methods for in-vitro testing of safety and efficacy of chemicals (including drugs) as well as studying disease and more general medical research.
To provide a detailed description of the latest advances in the technologies used for cell culture and the monitoring of cell function.
To describe the barriers and drivers to change, particularly the reduction and replacement of animal testing ( ethical, scientific, economic ).
To describe the technical challenges in creating and maintaining cell culture in a way that mimics the human environment (ie physiologically relevant models).
To analyse the specific challenges of scaling in-vitro models to the micro-scale needed to create the organ or human-on-a-chip
