3D cell culture set for space HD
Published on Jan 28, 2014
3D cell culture developed by Professor Stefan Przyborski from Durham University using funding from BBSRC is scheduled to journey to the International Space Station in late 2014.
The payload will include advanced bioreactors that will grow bone cells in space to research how microgravity affects the ways cells grow and communicate in space. The experiments are funded by NASA, the National Institutes of Health, and are led by Associate Professor Paola Divieti-Pajevic of Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), which conducts the largest hospital-based research program in the US.
