Invitation to the Special Issue of Bioengineering "Towards 3R Approaches: Bioengineering Tools and Technologies as Advanced Alternatives to Animal Testing"
The Special Issue, to be published in Bioengineering (MDPI), wants to highlight new and advanced bioengineering tools and technologies for developing better and more predictive alternative methods, whose integrated application could lead to reduction, refinement, and even replacement (3R) of animal use for scientific purposes and in pre-clinical research.
TOPICS: From basic biomedical research and tissue engineering studies to drug testing and toxicological screening, in particular
3D in vitro models of cells/tissues/organs
Biomimetic bioreactors, microfluidics, and organ-on-chips
Sensors and monitoring devices for 3D in vitro cultures
Test bench technologies
In silico approaches
