Hurel Corporation Announces Grant Program Based On Its 3-D Tissue Construct Technologies, Readies Call For Research Proposals From Academic Community
Date:9/26/2013

NORTH BRUNSWICK, N.J., Sept. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Hurel Corporation ("Hurel"), a leading developer of cell-based tissue constructs and microfluidic assay platforms that can improve the speed and accuracy of pre-clinical prediction in drug development, today announced an ambitious new research grant program to spur innovation in the use of its cell-based models in pharmaceutical and industrial toxicological research.  The company said it is prepared to commit in aggregate up to $150,000 under the grant program, and that it intends to invite qualified academic research scientists to submit funding proposals for projects that will seek to trailblaze new uses and applications for Hurel's high-functioning, long enduring hepatic tissue cultures.

Hurel focuses on the production of 3-dimensional tissue cultures that simulate and predict the in vivo function of the liver and other organs.  The Company recently launched its Hurelhuman™, Hureldog™, and Hurelrat™ product lines, which are created from the primary (i.e., actual) liver cells of the respective species.  Hureldog™ is the first characterized, 3-D tissue culture product based on primary liver cells from the canine species.

"Over the past three decades, my colleagues and I have developed and tested several different hepatic tissue constructs, many of which are utilized by researchers today, such as gel-overlay hepatocyte cultures and micropatterned co-cultures," said Martin Yarmush, MD, PhD, Hurel's Chief Scientific Adviser.  "In the evolution of these hepatic models, the Hurel® co-culture is the first that we deliberately engineered for use in industrial scientific research, where manufacturing efficiency, ability to replicate results, and ease of use in the lab are virtues of an importance equal to that of
