Utrecht Platform for Organoid Technology

How can the use of organoid models be optimised and improved in order to develop organoid based tests for personalized medicine?
ULS Platform for Organoid Technology

Organoid culturing methods represent a major scientific breakthrough, allowing researchers to generate ‘mini-organs’ in a dish for studying fundamental biological processes in health and disease. The technology has also entered the clinical arena, where organoid-based tests are starting to be used for personalized treatment.

To fully exploit organoid technology the ULS Platform for Organoids Technology provides a stable framework for rapid and standardized tissue acquisition and processing. Besides this the hub also supports the generation and analysis of novel organoid-based model systems with valorization potential and clinical relevance.

A next step towards tailor made treatments
