Cell Culture: Why Does It Remain Difficult? | BenchTalk, Episode 10


Maintaining cells outside of their natural environment is no easy task, but advances in microfluidics might change the way cell culture is performed in the future.

In this episode, researchers James Piret from the University of British Columbia and Aaron Wheeler from the University of Toronto discuss the present and future of cell culture methods.

And in our science roundtable, science writers Sarah C.P. Williams and Ashley Yeager discuss the #overlyhonestmethods Tweets and research misconduct apologies and rehab.
