Expertise Partner

FibroFind have established 3D human tissue models of fibrosis in multiple organs that maintain the architectural integrity, functionality and metabolic activities of the tissue over an extended period (6 days+). All major epithelial, endothelial and resident immune cell types are maintained and the tissue responds dynamically to physiologically relevant inducers of fibrosis. These platforms validate drug targets and efficacy of candidate drugs through a variety of readouts include soluble matrix factors, gene expression and histology.
