TEDD University Visit: Human 3D Tissue Models for Hazard Assessment and Cancer Research
Join the TEDD University Visit: Human 3D Tissue Models for Hazard Assessment and Cancer Research event on 31 January 2020 at Adolphe Merkle Institute, Fribourg, Switzerland. The BioNanomaterials group at AMI is investigating how tissue engineering approaches can be optimized to improve the predictive power of human 3D models. Ongoing research projects will be presented about how to investigate the hazard of aerosolized nanomaterials such as e.g. carbon nanotubes with lung tissue, the interaction of micro- and nanoplastic particles with a novel intestine model, and the effect of diesel exhaust particles on skin properties using a reconstructed epidermal model. Finally, emerging 3D Bioprinting technology for the design of an omental model to study the dynamics of cancer cells will be presented.
