CEO Ayla Annac said, "We are impressed with the quality, ethics and passions of the two Edgewood High School students this summer. They have shown a great eagerness to learn about the start-up environment and biotechnology."
"The goal of Edgewood's unique K-16 science program is to forge relationships between the three schools of Edgewood and community partners such as InvivoSciences. These relationships create a context for sharing expertise and resources which benefit us all. We are so fortunate to have in InvivoSciences as such a visionary and generous community partner. We look forward to many more opportunities to celebrate student accomplishments." Amy Schiebel, Associate Professor and K-16 Science Director at Edgewood College.
InvivoSciences has developed an assay system with engineered tissue-based compound screening technology, including their PalpatorTM device and connective tissue constructs fabricated in MC96TM. The ready-to-use tissues and assay platforms produced by InvivoSciences provide three-dimensional (3D) geometrics and physical environments for cells, bridging the gap between cell-based systems and isolated organ tissue systems or animal models by mimicking the functions of living organisms, specifically those of humans.
