USDA Seeks Comments for Better Standards to Promote the Psychological Well-Being of Primates in Labs

One of the long-standing goals of stem cell research has been to generate fully functional human organs in the lab. This would provide varied advantages to researchers, such as providing more accurate simulations of the human body’s physiological conditions and serving as a replacement for animal testing. A recent breakthrough has been made in this area, with researchers from the University of Michigan claiming to have developed the first set of 3D lungs in the laboratory.

The Vanderbilt-Pittsburgh Resource for Predictive Toxicology (VPROMPT) will receive $6 million for four years to develop toxicity test procedures based on three-dimensional human cell cultures, rather than the combination of standard two-dimensional cell cultures and whole animal testing that has been de rigeur until now.
