Evercyte at highly renowned Tenth World Congress 2017 - Alternatives and Animal Use in the Life Sciences

August 20-24, 2017, Seattle, Washington (USA)

Meet Johannes Grillari at the WC10 congress in Seattle, who will present two poster contributions:
 A novel hTERT immortalized human podocyte cell line modeling the glomerular filtration barrier
Long-term exposure of immortalized keratinocytes to arsenic induces EMT, impairs differentiation in organotypic skin models and mimics aspects of human skin derangements

Evercyte will show the importance of its hTERT immortalized cell lines and cell based assay services as real alternatives to animal testing, thus according very
well with the congress topic "The Three R´s in action", focusing on replacement, reduction and refinement.

Furthermore following new products and results will be featured:
Immortalized podocyte cell line PODO/TERT256 as 3D model in combination with telomerized human microvascular endothelial cells
hTERT immortalized human keratinocytes NHEK/SVTERT3-5 as model system to study arsenic induced human skin derangments

Take advantage, meet Johannes Grillari and get conference-only 20% discount on all orders received at the WC10!

Evercyte at highly respected Society of Toxicology meeting, ToxExpo 2017

Meet Johannes Grillari at ToxExpo 2017, in Baltimore from March 12-17th at booth 2566

Evercyte will be featuring a range of new offers and recently introduced services based on its capability to produce high quality cells that comply with Good Cell Culture Practice (GCCP) standards.

Available products and services now include

s A human podocyte cell line immortalized by telomerase that provides an important kidney toxicology model to complement Evercyte’s existing successful proximal tubular cell line RPTEC/TERT1 for kidney toxicity studies in vitro
s Human bronchial epithelial cells (HBEC3-KT) immortalized by telomerase that use well differentiated cells as model systems to study lung disease / cancer and toxicology
s Gene editing of human primary like cells using CrispR/Cas9 and RPTEC/TERT1 cells as an example that can be extended to any gene deletion, gene or reporter insertion
s Capability to generate induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) from human urine in a fully non-invasive way 

Evercyte shares key cell NextGen data with Human Protein Atlas and clients

Vienna, 2-2017: Over the past two months, Evercyte researchers have contributed transcriptome analysis on several relevant human immortalized cell lines into HPA. This co-operation with the Swedish-based Atlas project has also provided important new insights into the next generation sequencing (NGS) data of Evercyte cell lines. NGS data of ell lines, like renal proximal tubular epithelial cells (RPTEC/TERT1), an important model for assessing kidney function and toxicology, umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC/TERT2), a premier model for cardiovascular research, myoblasts (LHCN-M2) for muscle and sarcopenia research, adipose derived mesenchymal stem cells (ASC/TERT1) for the fields of adipogenesis, chondrogenesis and osteogenesis as well as corneal epithelial cells (hTCEpi) for eye research.

This means Evercyte is now able to offer download of NGS transcriptome data on hTERT immortalized and telomerased cell lines from our website, potentially enabling functionality and quality to be further enhanced.

Evercyte is part of 'in3'

An integrated interdisciplinary approach to animal-free nanomaterial and chemical safety assessment.

Vienna, Innsbruck, 2-2017: The in3 project (grant no. 721975) is a Marie Curie Innovative Training Network that aims to drive the synergistic development and utilisation of in vitro and in silico tools for human chemical and nanomaterial (NM) safety assessment. The project will focus on differentiation of human induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (hiPSC) to toxicologically relevant target tissues including; brain, lung, liver and kidney. The tissues, from the same genetic backgrounds, will be exposed to several compounds and the data generated will be used to develop safety assessment approaches by integrating cheminformatics, mechanistic toxicology and biokinetics into computational models. The project will hire 15 PhD students to carry out these activities in a coordinated and highly collaborative fashion. The scientists trained within in3 will acquire a unique multidisciplinary skill set giving them a competitive employment advantage in safety assessment sciences, either in industry, governmental bodies or academia.

15 international phD postitions advertised

Paul Jennings, Medizinische Universität Innsbruck and speaker of the in3 consortium announces, that the project will run from January 2017 to the end of 2021. Recruitment is open now and will remain open until all positions are filled. Each of the 15 positions advertised is a 3 year PhD position. Applicants must be Early-Stage Researchers (ESRs), meaning that they are within the first four years (full-time equivalent) of their research careers and have not yet been awarded a doctoral degree (PhD). We expect the first ESRs to commence employment in March 2017. We aim to have all positions filled by July 2017.
