Our team member Katarina Pedersen recently pushed an editorial on sustainability in cell culture research. You can read it here!
Cell culture is the bread and butter of cancer research, but the methods we use to culture those cells are currently completely unsustainable – from huge volumes of single use plastic, to excessive incineration of waste, the whole procedure desperately needs shaking up. In the editorial, we offer some tips and resources for researchers on how to make their work more sustainable, and we implore laboratory suppliers to get serious about offering sustainable alternatives.
As well as being a timely and important piece of writing, this also represents Katarina’s first publication – a key research milestone! Well done Katarina!
