Improving cell culture media

7th January 2019

Beatson Institute researchers led by Dr Saverio Tardito have been investigating the difference that using traditional media vs a homemade one that more closely mimics physiological conditions can make to the outcome of experiments. The work has been published in Science Advances: Improving the metabolic fidelity of cancer models with a physiological cell culture medium. The research has been covered in an article in The Atlantic: Scientists Have Been Studying Cancers in a Very Strange Way for Decades and also in Cancer Research UK's blog: Cell culture shock – a scientist’s hunt for the perfect cocktail.
