Unmet Need- Cellular Performance

A common problem while using cultivated cells for research, in the healthcare setting, and for industrial purposes is that cells experience stress, which in turn reduce their function and survival. This is problematic since it severely limits what cells can be used for, which reduce profitability for users of cell cultivation. This stress is caused when cells become exposed to conditions critically different from their natural environment inside the body. Thus, a possibility to mimic the real environment of the body would have a tremendous effect on cultivated cells and their applications.

As demonstrated in this work, it is undeniable that current day methods limit what we can do with cell cultivation, but it is also scary to think that we as a field may need to reconsider the ways we have always worked with cells in the lab”
