Every day we come across innovative, intelligent studies that do not rely on animals to investigate human diseases and that instead find efficient and cost-effective solutions in biomedical research that are human-focused. In this edition of Research Round-up we highlight three papers from scientists who have developed novel human-focused models to mimic the oral mucosa as well as to study diabetes and renal disease.
A model of the oral mucosa
A new study shows that it is now possible to study human oral mucosa using a 3D model created in the lab. According to the authors, this new model is a promising alternative to animal testing and brings new possibilities to the field of regenerative medicine. [Read more…]
