BIRDIE Voices: Michelle Jäschke

Creating systemic in vitro models is a major challenge for medical research and drug development. While human cell cultures offer accurate representation on a cellular level, they lack the complexity and connectivity of a real organ. Animal models, on the other side of the spectrum, are inherently systematic, but are poor stand-ins for human biology.…
