Axol Bioscience and Metrion Biosciences Announce Research Collaboration

Axol Bioscience and Metrion Biosciences Announce Research Collaboration

Cambridge, UK, 26 July 2016: Axol Bioscience, a biotechnology company specialising in the supply of human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived cells, and Metrion Biosciences, a specialist ion channel drug discovery business, have signed a collaboration agreement to improve, standardise and more accurately predict the risk of human clinical pro-arrhythmias. This is in accordance with the FDA’s Comprehensive in vitro Proarrhythmia Assay (CiPA) initiative, which aims to revise cardiac safety testing regulations.

Under the terms of the agreement, Metrion will use Axol’s human iPSC-derived cardiomyocytes to carry out ion channel screening, cardiac safety testing and translational phenotypic assays. Combining Metrion's contract research services and assay development capabilities with Axol’s human iPSC-derived cells and culture reagents will provide a source of well-validated, CiPA-compliant stem cell-derived assays and services for use in predictive toxicology as well as drug discovery screening.

MESO-BRAIN Initiative Receives €3.3 Million to Replicate Brain’s Neural Networks Through 3D Nanoprinting

MESO-BRAIN Initiative Receives €3.3 Million to Replicate Brain’s Neural Networks Through 3D Nanoprinting

BIRMINGHAM, CAMBRIDGE, HUDDERSFIELD (UK), HANNOVER (Germany), BARCELONA (Spain), 9 June 2016: The MESO-BRAIN consortium has received a prestigious award of €3.3 million in funding from the European Commission as part of its Future and Emerging Technology (FET) scheme. The project aims to develop three-dimensional (3D) human neural networks with specific biological architecture, and the inherent ability to interrogate the network’s brain-like activity both electrophysiologically and optically. It is expected that the MESO-BRAIN will facilitate a better understanding of human disease progression, neuronal growth and enable the development of large-scale human cell-based assays to test the modulatory effects of pharmacological and toxicological compounds on neural network activity. The use of more physiologically relevant human models will increase drug screening efficiency and reduce the need for animal testing.
