Adult Stem Cell Organoids: a Patient in the Lab
Key to the development of the HUB Organoid Technology was the discovery of adult stem cells by Hans Clevers. Provided with the appropriate growth factors, the adult stem cells form a polarized epithelium in which stem cells and their differentiated offspring maintain their natural hierarchy and function. In addition, the organoids are genetically stable during prolonged culture. Subsequently, we developed organoid technology for most other epithelia. High-establishment efficiency means that we can use the Organoid Technology to generate disease models from virtually all patients.
