A ‘Clear’ Choice for Clearing 3-D Cell Cultures

Biomedical engineering doctoral student Molly Boutin was recently published in the journal Tissue Engineering Part C: Methods for her novel comparison of chemical treatments that make tissues see-through and thus easier to see all the cells and connections throughout a culture. She worked alongside her adviser, Diane Hoffman-Kim, associate professor of medical science in the Department of Molecular Pharmacology, Physiology and Biotechnology to test the treatments.
