The Therapeutic Technologies Research Initiative (TTRI) is focused on new applications of mechanopharmacology and organ-on-a-chip technology to transform drug-screening processes.

The Initiative has selected three Research Themes as initial areas of focus: drug evaluation, mechanopharmacology and disease remodeling.

Thank you for your support!

Here is the video script:
Hi! My name is Fernando Jativa and welcome to The University of Melbourne. Today I want to take you in a visit to the lung health research centre and the Mechanopharmacology Lab.

Is in here were I do my PhD and I apply my engineering background for the study of the lung and lung diseases. Our bodies are in almost constant motion, and each of our cells participate in this dynamic environment. And the lung is no exception.

Lung diseases are some of the most common medical conditions in the world. At least one in every 4 Australians have a lung disease, and
approximately 14% of all deaths each year are a result of asthma, lung cancer, COPD, pneumonia and other lung diseases (1)

Therefore we urgently need new ways to study and treat them. However, studying living cells in the lab can be quite challenging. If we want to make cells happy outside our bodies, we must replicate the dynamic environment and their 3D structure.

Traditional lab techniques use a single layer of cells in plastic. In our research, we use 3D aggregates of more than 50k cells interacting together in a single structure. We call them spheroids, and they give us very interesting insights on how diseases develop. Furthermore we can engineer microfluidic channels to determine their mechanical properties. Spheroid and single cell deformation allow us determine relevant properties as stiffness,compresibility and viscosity.

Our results show that in spheroids from lung disease patients, as in fibrosis, unhealthy cells in spheroids undergo cell remodeling, stiffness increase, and changes in gene expression

Hope you enjoyed this quick video, this is what we are doing in the university of Melbourne, see you next time!
