Last week, I was at ELRIGfr meeting in Monaco, as president of RA’pro (Association for the Promotion of Augmented Reality), to chair an augmented reality workshop with famous societies as Molecular Devices, Sopra Steria, agence dad and Microtechnix.  Many other things were of course interesting and, even if I’m not a biologist, I’m happy to […]

In a study published last October in the journal Stem Cell Research, Chandrasekaran et al. compared the induction of neural progenitor cells (NPCs) from human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) obtained by 2D and 3D culture methods. Neural differentiation of five hiPSC lines was analyzed at the protein level by immunocytochemistry and flow cytometry to […]

I was really happy to be invited in SIBS 2017 in Zurich last week to present our work on 3D cell culture in phenotypic screening and our use of disruptive technologies in our process (augmented reality and virtual reality). I presented our collaborative work with Dr Karim Si-Tayeb, researcher from Institut du Thorax (CHOPIN project) […]

Human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSC) are becoming a relevant model for the study of liver metabolic diseases once differentiated into hepatocyte-like cells (HLC), and it has been shown that they can faithfully recapitulate autosomal dominant hypercholesterolemia (ADH). PCSK9 is a critical modulator of cholesterol homeostasis, and quickly became a hot target for ADH pharmacological […]
