Don’t fall into the cell line misidentification trap. Authenticate! What you don’t know–or what you refuse to acknowledge–will hurt you.

Creating a Culture of Care


Institutions that work with lab animals should establish a “culture of care” to make sure animals are treated with compassion. Animal welfare isn’t just good for the animal; it also affects the quality of science and the lives of the people and animals that stand to benefit from the research.

Roundup on Research Mouse Models


GEN recently interviewed seven experts to learn just what makes a good mouse model for biopharmaceutical research and to find out for which applications and diseases better models are most needed.

The Obesity Paradox -- Seriously?


Joseph Cornicelli, a Scientific Advisor of Charles River Discovery Services in the areas of inflammation and metabolic and cardiovascular diseases, weighs in on recent data that appear to dampen the health risks of obesity.

More True-to-Life Cell-Based Assays


Complex biology cannot be modeled with simple, stand-alone in vitro systems. More sophisticated, physiologically relevant systems are needed.

Why this crab's blood could save your life


Nearly 50 years ago, scientists discovered the horseshoe crab's clotting response to bacterial toxins. Now, its blood is harvested in huge quantities to be used in a test to ensure medical products are not contaminated.
