Welcome on board Fabiana!

2020-12-22T10:13:45+00:00

She joined the finance team in November. Two months are passed and we asked her some questions which she answered with a hint of shyness. We present Fabiana, our accountant. 1) Fabiana, first of all, welcome on board! Tell us about yourself. Thanks! I am a quiet person, but at the same time pro-active. [...]

“Femininity without compromise. Innovation is never conventional”, the editorial project that involved our founder Silvia Scaglione.

2020-11-30T09:33:38+00:00

"Innovation is never conventional". It is with this slogan that Pasqua Vini, a historic Veronese winery specializing in the production of quality Venetian and Italian wines, has built a project to pay homage to 33 innovative women who have changed the rules of the game in the world of innovation. Among these 33 women [...]

The challenge of the cosmetics industry: discovering compounds that block pollutants in contact with the skin.

2020-11-18T11:15:23+00:00

Scientific research shows that polluting particles are extremely fine and highly dangerous. Our test allows to quantify the percentage of particulate passes through the skin model to determine the protective factor of the cosmetic compound. We call it "antipollution test": it is fast, innovative and effective. Air pollution can cause serious health problems, especially [...]

Reducing the time and cost of screening for new compounds and limiting the number of animals used in in-vivo tests is the future of drug discovery.

2020-10-16T09:48:53+00:00

Cristina Degrassi, CEO of MTTLab, tells us about her experience with React4life which led to the publication of the paper on Altex: "3D fluid-dynamic ovarian cancer model resembling systemic drug administration for efficacy assay". The ability to control drugs quickly and efficiently with a more accurate preclinical tumor model is of great importance in [...]

3D fluid-dynamic ovarian cancer model resembling systemic drug administration for efficacy assay

2021-04-09T10:23:35+00:00

In this recent scientific result, our team demonstrates that the in vivo-like dynamic environment provided by the MIVO® device allows for better modeling of the 3D tumor environment and predicting drug efficacy in vivo compared to a static in vitro model. Recently, 3D in vitro cancer models have become important alternatives to animal tests [...]

MIVO® and intestinal permeability, a perfect combination to study the absorption mechanism and the biological effects of drugs and food compounds

2020-08-27T13:22:02+00:00

MIVO®  technology has made possible the implementation of a fluidic 3D in vitro model of the intestinal barrier. In this article it is demonstrated that MIVO®, combined with a 3D intestinal epithelium model, allows to emulate the intestinal environment in vitro, as a reliable platform for the study of the passage of molecules, discriminating [...]

Covid19 and heart: an advanced in vitro research on infection mechanism

2020-07-16T13:32:06+00:00

Monzino and Spallanzani, with the biotech React4life, join forces to study new therapies to protect the heart from the virus. Regione Lombardia finances the Cardio-Cov research project. To understand the mechanisms on the heart connected to COVID-19, Centro Cardiologico Monzino, with the collaboration of the National Institute of Infectious Diseases (INMI) "Lazzaro Spallanzani" in [...]
