Animal Free Labcast #15 - Professor Mike Philpott – Saving Our Skin

The Animal Free Labcast

Jan 31 2023 • 21 mins

It is a little known fact that scientists can cure cancer in mice, but not yet in humans.

In this episode, Carla speaks with skin expert Professor Mike Philpott, who heads up the Animal Replacement Centre of Excellence at Queen Mary University of London – funded by Animal Free Research UK. At the ARC, Mike and his team are using human relevant methods to study skin, head and neck cancer, all without using mice - or any other animals. Listen to find out what led Mike to develop a now widely used human skin model, and the surprising place Mike and his team source human skin.

PS. You may have heard of in-vitro, but what about ex-vivo? Mike simplifies the science for us.
