Objective:

The need for human, organotypic culture models coupled with the requirements of contemporary toxin screening (i.e. reproducibility, high throughput, transferability of data, clear mechanisms of action, defined adverse outcomes) frame an opportunity for a paradigm shift. We propose to establish the Human Models for Analysis of Pathways (H-MAPs) Center to advance the next generation of toxicity testing formats, and to develop a broadly applicable set of tools for toxin screening.

The H-MAPs Center Objectives are to:

  • Generate pluripotent stem cell-derived cells that properly represent the diverse phenotypic characteristics of developing or mature human somatic cells;
  • Generate organotypic cell culture models that are robust and reproducible;
  • Translate organotypic cell culture models to microscale systems for HTS;
  • Combine genomic/epigenomic analyses with bioinformatics to gain molecular level insights into organotypic model assembly and the pathways influenced by toxins.

The H-MAPs Center will bring together leading experts in human pluripotent stem cell biology, human development, and microscale tissue engineering to develop organotypic human models. The Center will also form organotypic human models in robust, innovative high throughput screening systems and identify mechanisms of action associated with toxicity using bioinformatics-based pathway analysis.
