Certis Oncology Intelligence: The Science of Certainty

About Certis Above, a 3-dimensional image shows multiple metastatic lesions of lung adenocarcinoma in the liver. Unlike tumors in subcutaneous PDX models, cancer has been shown to metastasize in O-PDX models—one of the many important advantages unique to orthotopic models. Established in 2016, Certis Oncology Solutions is a precision oncology and translational

A Tale of Two Tubes: Exploring the Causes of Cardiovascular Disease from the Arteries to the Gut

The Integrative Cardiovascular Physiology laboratory at Colorado State University investigates the underlying causes of cardiovascular abnormalities in the settings of obesity and nutrient excess. Obese individuals are at an increased risk for developing cardiovascular disease (CVD)1. Prior to overt clinical manifestation of CVD, the arteries of obese individuals (and other at-risk populations) begin to

Investigating mechanisms driving acute kidney injury arising from heart surgery and sepsis

A team of researchers and clinicians at the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health are investigating ways to reduce the incidence of kidney injury resulting from heart surgery and sepsis. Acute kidney injury is when our kidneys suddenly stop working. This happens in up to 30% of patients after heart surgery. Up to

Investigating the role of metabolism in human induced pluripotent stem cell generation

This team of researchers in the Biology Department at Western University are investigating metabolic ways to increase efficiency of reprogramming adult cells to iPSCs. Embryonic stem cells are pluripotent, which means they can turn into any cell type found in the adult body and are therefore critical for human development1. Stem cells show great promise in
