NIH Awards $15 Million For 3D Human Tissue Models

Published: Sep 14, 2017

The National Institutes of Health has announced 13 two-year awards, totaling $15 million a year, for hospitals and universities to develop 3D human tissue models.

The funding will go toward the first phase of a five-year program.

Even though pre-clinical studies using cell and animal research models are promising, more than 60% of investigational drugs fail in human trials because of ineffectiveness.
