Organoid Research It has long been known that cells cultured in two dimensions (2D) are not representative of the in vivo situation as a result of their growth being restricted to a flat surface. This minimises cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions, causing the distinctive phenotype to be lost and the cells to react differently to external [...]

Small Molecules ‘Small molecules’ (SMs) are a diverse set of organic molecules, and one that can be hard to pin down more specifically. In life sciences research, what we usually mean is bioactive small molecules, with a mass no more than about one kilodalton. Scientists can use these small molecules to activate or inhibit some biological function [...]
