MatTek Corporation, a proud supporter of the 9th World Congress on Alternatives and Animal Use in the Life Sciences (WC9), will be presenting at this year’s Congress, hosted August 24-28, in Prague, Czech Republic. With 16 abstracts approved and selected by the Congress’s Scientific Committee, MatTek will be presenting both posters and oral presentations during the five day meeting. These abstracts cover topics including epithelial biobarriers, topical toxicity, risk assessment, and in vitro disease models.  As a leader in groundbreaking research and innovation, MatTek Corporation’s participation at WC9 will contribute a fresh perspective on these evolving topics.

The posters to be presented include:
