HUB Living Biobank of Breast Cancer Organoids Captures Disease Heterogeneity

In a study published in Cell, Dr. Hans Clevers, CSO of HUB, has demonstrated that the heterogeneity of breast cancer subtypes can be captured using patient derived Organoid cultures.

This publication was also picked up by national newspaper De Volkskrant with the key message that this new system could help speed up drug development considerably while also saving money.
