The team of prof. Astrid Groot from the UvA Institute for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Dynamics (IBED) are looking for a financial sponsor which can help close the funding gap or a organization who is interested in a partnership. Aim is for finding a sustainable control strategy to address to the fall army worm pest in Africa. Using sex pheromones the insects will be lured into a trap, where the will be infected by a highly selected virus. Prof Astrid Groot from IBED proposes this large project together with two colleagues from Wageningen University. Essential part of the project is also to establish a local network with field stations, local farmers, and industry to successfully implement this method.

Drug target discovery in neuroscience is increasingly relying on human samples to generate meaningful data that translates into actionable strategies. Open access to well-characterized brain tissue of high quality is crucial to obtain these insights and is the goal of the Netherlands Brain Bank.

HepaRG cells outperform all other proliferative sources of human hepatocytes in liver functions. Now we modified the HepaRG cell line by stable lentiviral overexpression of the constitutive androstane receptor (CAR), a regulator of e.g. detoxification and energy metabolism, which has the following advantages: High liver functionality & increased mitochondrial energy metabolism in monolayer, particularly in […]
