In vitro models aims to address the paradigm-shift in research related to: i) an increasing trend for “saying good bye to flat biology”, i.e. introducing 3D in research methods in order to develop tools to better emulate human tissues/organs and diseases, and ii) to reduce/eliminate the need for animal experimentation.  As the first journal fully dedicated to this research area, we will provide both a home for research on in vitro models and a platform to foster its multi-disciplinary community.
  • Uniquely positioned to serve the multi-disciplinary research community, exploring in vitro models
  • We aim for a fast and fair review process, with a time to first decision after peer-review within 28 days 
  • We welcome contributions involving the development of in vitro tools and methods to effectively emulate human tissues, organs and disease and that can be alternatives to animal experimentation
