Field 1 – Disease Models

The Disease Models available here range from state-of-the-art in vitro models like 3D cultures, organoids and organs-on-a-chip to in vivo, patient-proximate models and advanced precision cancer models generated using CRISPR-Cas9. These models can be used to study a wide range of cancer topics like tumor progression, metastasis and tumor resistance, and are at the core of understanding cancer biology, identifying markers of cancer and prognosis, and for the development and testing of general and personalised therapeutics.
