The organizer of the North East England Life Science Showcase, Prof. Anne Dickinson, Director of Alcyomics, will be giving a showcase presentation titled In vitro pre-clinical testing for predicting adverse immune reactions. Alcyomics’ pre-clinical Skimune®3D service uses REPROCELL’s Alvetex in its non-artificial human skin explants for safety and efficacy assessment of novel compounds and drugs.
Also included in the event program is a showcase presentation by REPROCELL’s Senior Technical Product Manager, Robert Annand, PhD. Dr Annand’s presentation on Human Tissue and 3D-Cell based Models for Drug Discovery will showcase REPROCELL’s pre-clinical contract research organization provides unique custom pharmacology assay services using freshly-sourced human tissues and 3D tissue models.
REPROCELL Europe Ltd.’s operations are based in North East England and in nearby Scotland. Our CSO, Prof. Stefan Przyborski, is also Professor of Cell Technology at Durham University (in North East England). Our CEO, Dr David Bunton, an expert in vascular pharmacology, was co-founder of Biopta (now REPROCELL Europe’s Center for Predictive Drug Discovery in Glasgow, Scotland) which specializes in drug discovery contract research using ethically sourced live human tissue from a network of hospitals.
