Developing ex vivo cultures of animal and human explants for toxicity screening and efficacy testing of new drugs and nanomedical formulations

My research will focus on establishing a 3D ex vivo system using precision cut tissue slices for drug testing that will fill the gap between in vitro and in vivo experiments. It wil also allow us to be closer to real human exposure to xenobiotics and chemicals and to investigate new therapeutic systems.
