In vitro models replicating the human intestinal epithelium for absorption and metabolism studies: A systematic reviewGiulia Piaggio2021-06-22T08:16:30+00:00
In this review, we provide an overview of in vitro models aimed at mimicking the intestinal barrier for pharmaceutical screening. After briefly describing how the human small intestine works, we present i) conventional 2D synthetic and cell-based systems, ii) 3D models replicating the main features of the intestinal architecture, iii) micro-physiological systems (MPSs) reproducing [...]
The three days of the first workshop organized by React4life, in which three young scientists from two different Italian Universities took part, are ending today. Through this workshop Giulia, Giorgio and Tiago had the opportunity to learn topics such as 3D culture and microfluidics; moreover, [...]
Do you know the stereotype of the researcher? Here, Monica is the exact opposite: sparkling, sunny and full of interests: during the day she takes care of her cells in our laboratory in Vimodrone, in her free time she goes wild dancing Zumba and relaxes by gardening. She has just been the protagonist of [...]
Cancer cell plasticity represents the basis for cancer progression. Let’s think about the ability of cancer cells to grow within different niches: these cells are so adaptable that are able to grow in their original tissue, as well as in metastatic sites, even if histologically very different. Similarly, they can adapt to adverse stimuli, [...]

To further [...]
She has been with us for just over a year. She is head of internal and external communication of the company and the marketing activities. Today we present Giulia, our brand manager. Giulia, it seems like yesterday that we started working together but a year has already passed. We speak your language: can you [...]
The development of new research methods for drug analysis represents one of the most significant aspects of drug development. However, this complicated process still faces some challenges from significant issues such as time consumption, low-throughput, poor reliability and standardization, high cost. The traditional 2D static culture in most cases do not predict the in [...]
