Retinal platform

An in vitro, light responsive, retinal model for accurate predictions of in vivo outcomes you can have confidence in.


Kidney platform

The most advanced near-physiological high throughput kidney proximal tubule cells (PTC) model to investigate drug transport modalities in vitro.

Lung epithelia model

Lung model

A model to investigate airway physiology, viral infection, drug safety and environmental impacts on lung airway epithelia.

Sinusoid iPSC-derived Liver model

Liver model

We are developing a model of liver sinusoid derived from human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC).

Hannah Steward

Associate Scientist

Hannah has always had a love for Science! Following her undergraduate degree in Edinburgh, where she focused on molecular toxicology, she moved to Oslo, Norway where she completed a two-year MSc. This entailed an 18-month laboratory project where she concluded endoplasmic reticulum stress downregulates c-MYC expression through proteasomal degradation in prostate cancer cells. Being half Norwegian, it was also an amazing opportunity to explore her heritage, cross country ski and swim in the fjords after a long day in the laboratory.
