New article published for Nanostem project about the interaction between nanoparticles and the blood-brain barrier in vitro

To treat brain disease is a challeging purpose, since the brain is protected by a barrier made by of tightly-joined endothelial cells of the cerebral microvessels, called the blood–brain barrier (BBB). To improve this route to reach the central nervous system, several strategies have been developed. Among them, researchers try Read more…

Poster – A single procedure to generate functional hiPSCs-derived liver organoids -Towards an innovative tool suitable for drug screening

We previously showed that human pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) provide a suitable model to study metabolic diseases upon hepatocyte-like cell (HLC) differentiation. In particular, HLCs have been used to model cholesterol metabolism regulation, by mimicking the main disease features in vitro. Human iPSCs can be generated from urine samples of Read more…

BIOMIMESYS® Adipose tissue

Increased expression of differentiation genes with BIOMIMESYS® Adipose tissue

The morphological changes in cells during differentiation are accompanied by a profound change at the molecular level. In vivo, the adipocyte differentiation process includes early and late events due to differential gene regulation. The appearance of these markers is a sign of differentiation of pre-adipocytes and hence the development of Read more…
