3D Printed Microfluidic Bioreactor for Brain Organoid Culture

Researchers at MIT and the Indian Institute of Technology Madras have developed a 3D-printed microfluidic bioreactor that can be used to culture and study brain organoids. The tiny self-organizing nodules of brain tissue are very useful in studying neurological disease and the effects of drugs. However, the bioreactors used to grow brain organoids (Read more...)

Abandoning stamp can make DMEK better

S- or F-stamping donor tissue for Descemet’s membrane endothelial keratoplasty is widely practiced to guard against DMEK’s most embarrassing potential complication: accidental upside-down graft implantation.These orientation marks are so common, in fac…

SARS-CoV-2 infects mouth cells

Researchers recently found evidence that SARS-CoV-2 infects cells in the mouth, specifically in the salivary glands and tissues lining the oral cavity, suggesting that it is a site for potential infection and transmission.It is known that the upper air…
