Hot Off The Press!

A huge congratulations to one of our customers, Dr. Helen Clough, on her first published paper!

“Neutrally charged self-assembling peptide hydrogel recapitulates in vitro mechanisms of breast cancer progression”

Helen’s paper highlights how PeptiGels® can be used to successfully mimic the 3D tumour microenvironment of breast cancer in vitro. PeptiGel® Alpha 1 was able to closely mimic the mechanical properties of breast tumour tissue and supported the viability and growth of breast cancer cell lines MCF-7 and MDA-MB-231 for 14 days. In addition to this, key features of solid tumors such as hypoxia and invasion were recapitulated.
