Helpathon #4 - can you help Frank?

Can you help Frank with integrating an immune system into a macaque lung organoid to address local immunity to tuberculosis with his vaccination strategy? Join Helpathon #4, look at www.tpihelpathon.nl/coming-up ! Frank Verreck does research on tuberculosis at the Biomedical Primate Research Center (BPRC). Tuberculosis is the most deadly infectious disease worldwide! For the past hundred years, BCG (Bacillus Calmette Guérin) vaccinations take place through the skin. Research shows that macaques can be better protected from this infection by vaccination through their lungs. Frank really wants to further study the potential of this alternative vaccination strategy. He wants to understand how this BCG vaccination works in macaques lungs.

Helpathon #4 - can you help Raissa?

Can you help Raissa find a more complex organoid-like brain and immune model based on rhesus microglia to study aging in relation to neuroinflammation and neurodegenerative diseases? Join Helpathon #4, look at www.tpihelpathon.nl/coming-up ! Raissa Timmerman is a PhD student at the alternative unit at the Biomedical Primate Research Center. A better understanding of aging of the brain is key to studying neuroinflammation and neurodegenerative diseases. We believe there is a potential for breakthrough in using our existing live macaque data obtained from past aging experiments to develop more complex in vitro rhesus brain-like models and then to correlate all this data with data from human in vitro models and human live data.

Helpathon #4 - can you help Anne-Marie?

Can you help Anne-Marie develop a more organ-like Rhesus 3D liver model in which she can study the dormancy and the waking up of malaria parasites? Join Helpathon #4, look at www.tpihelpathon.nl/coming-up ! Anne- Marie Zeeman is a researcher at the Biomedical Primate Research Center (BPRC). Anne-Marie studies recurrent malaria ( P. vivax). She successfully developed a single cell layer in vitro model to study compounds affecting dormant and active malaria parasites in the liver of Rhesus monkeys. We believe that the cross correlation between in vitro Rhesus and in vitro human models will provide the missing link required to improve the drug development process and aid transition. A more refined Rhesus in vitro model can reduce the number of monkeys currently used for testing drugs. The data from in vivo monkeys combined with new in vitro models could help validate and develop reliable human in vitro models making testing on monkeys unnecessary detours.
