In vitro generation of human pluripotent stem cell derived lung organoids

Recent breakthroughs in 3-dimensional (3D) organoid cultures for many organ systems have led to new physiologically complex in vitro models to study human development and disease. Here, Dye BR and colleagues from Department of Cell and Developmental Biology (University of Michigan Medical School) expose the step-wise differentiation of human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) (embryonic and […]

Microgravity as a biological tool to examine host–pathogen interactions and to guide development of therapeutics

Space exploration programs have long been interested in the effects of spaceflight on biology. Bacterial behavior has been shown to be altered both in space and under simulated microgravity conditions. In some cases, bacteria appear attenuated, whereas in others virulence is enhanced. The microgravity environment can be exploited as a tool in the search for […]

Scaffold-free tissue formation under real and simulated Microgravity

Scaffold-free tissue formation in microgravity is a new method in regenerative medicine and an important topic in Space Medicine. As spaceflights are rare and extremely expensive, cell culture under simulated microgravity allows more comprehensive and frequent studies on the scaffold-free 3D tissue formation in some aspects, as a number of publications have proven during the […]

Microfluidic assays for mobile tumor cells in human body fluids: rethinking liquid biopsy

Liquid biopsy is a blood test involving the harvesting of tumor materials from peripheral blood. Tumor cells from non-blood body fluids have always been clinically available in cytological examinations but limited for use in differential diagnosis due to the low sensitivity of conventional cytopathology. With the recent significant progress in microfluidic and downstream molecular technologies, […]
