In Vitro Model of Liver Steatosis for Screening of Drug Compounds
The decrease in liver steatosis in hepatocytes cultured in steatosis reducing medium. Invention Summary: Donor livers are frequently rejected due to high intracellular fat content, called steatosis, which increases the risk of primary graft non-function in transplant patients. Because liver transplantation remains the only effective treatment for...

Multilayer Stackable Tissue Culture Platform for 3D Co-Culture
Invention Summary: In a native tissue inside an animal, different types of cells co-exist and communicate with one another through the surrounding microenvironment using chemical and mechanical signaling. The lack of technology to recreate such a microenvironment in in vitro models results in either under or over prediction of results using conventional...
