Embedding of Precision-Cut Lung Slices in Engineered Hydrogel Biomaterials Supports Extended Ex Vivo Culture
Precision-cut lung slices are very thin slices of lung tissue that can be kept alive in culture outside of the body and studied as a model for a variety of chronic pulmonary diseases. Unfortunately, slices alone are only viable for about a week, which is not enough time to study disease mechanisms and treatment. The … Continue reading Embedding of Precision-Cut Lung Slices in Engineered Hydrogel Biomaterials Supports Extended Ex Vivo Culture
