Applications of Organoid Technology 2020

Biomedical Innovation Course

Applications of Organoid Technology is a one-week intensive course offered by MDI Biological Laboratory in partnership with us, Hubrecht Organoid Technology (HUB). HUB is the global organoid center of excellence and the global leader in the field of Organoid Technology.

In this course, participants learn all the basic and essential techniques needed to culture human organoids from different diseases models. Furthermore, participants learn how to perform established assays such as forskolin-induced swelling or cell viability with organoids derived from cystic fibrosis and cancer models. Researchers will be able to use the skills they learn in this course to set up organoid technology in their own laboratories.

In a nutshell:

  • learn the basics of organoid cell culture and the most recent developments in the organoid field
  • through hands-on laboratory work, focus on cultures from HUB Organoids Living Biobank, which include organoids from patients with various forms of cancer (colon, breast, lung, and pancreatic) and cystic fibrosis
  • learn to identify the underlying causes for tissue-specific diseases, as well as drug sensitivity and responsiveness to drug combinations
