Benedikt B. Kaufer Project Director, Institute for Virologyat the Freie Universität Berlin speaks about his remarkable NASA-funded study published in Plos Pathology. The paper regarded using Tissue Like Arrays (TLAs) for modelling disease in human neurons. Varicella zoster Virus (VZV) is difficult to model in cell cultures due to their short lifespan, however TLAs have a longer lifespan and also are a closer model to a neuronal ganglion. Benedikt talks about the challenges involved in this technology and also the routes of potential applications.
