NC3R awards Carina Dunlop a £135k grant for a 4-year PhD studentship on digital twin development

NC3R (National Council for the Replacement, Refinement and Reduction of Animals in Research) has awarded Carina Dunlop, in collaborationi with Dr Paola Campagnolo (FHMS, Surrey), a £135,000 grant for a 4 year PhD studentship. The title of the project is “Developing a digital twin of 3D vascular systems to study haemorrhagic viral diseases“, and a link to the announcement along with project description is available (link here). The principal aim is to develop a cellular level in silico model of 3D multicellular vascular organoids to investigate haemorrhagic diseases and potential drug screening to replace the use of mice.
