Today, a range of products based on genomics, proteomics and metabolomics have facilitated the development of 'stratified' medicines and companion diagnostics. This investigation profiles a series of targeted medicines and corresponding diagnostics, and their role(s) in supporting evidence-based medicine. Despite their potential benefits we found that(More)
Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) have the potential to transform drug discovery and healthcare in the 21(st) century. However, successful commercialization will require standardized manufacturing platforms. Here we highlight the need to define standardized practices for iPSC generation and processing and discuss current challenges to the robust(More)
There has been a large increase in basic science activity in cell therapy and a growing portfolio of cell therapy trials. However, the number of industry products available for widespread clinical use does not match this magnitude of activity. We hypothesize that the paucity of engagement with the clinical community is a key contributor to the lack of(More)
Bioprocess forces such as shear stress experienced during routine cell culture are considered to be harmful to cells. However, the impact of physical forces on cell behavior is an area of growing interest within the tissue engineering community, and it is widely acknowledged that mechanical stimulation including shear stress can enhance osteogenic(More)
Increased global connectivity has catalyzed technological development in almost all industries, in part through the facilitation of novel collaborative structures. Notably, open innovation and crowd-sourcing-of expertise and/or funding-has tremendous potential to increase the efficiency with which biomedical ecosystems interact to deliver safe, efficacious(More)
