Dissecting Cancer-Microbiome Interactions with Organoids and Organ-Chips

April 6, 2023
10:00 am — 11:00 am


Over the past 15 years, organoids have revolutionized the study of human organ and tumor behavior. In the coming years, Organ-on-a-Chip technology promises to rapidly increase the complexity of human organotypic models, enabling the discovery of more physiologically relevant insights into human health and disease. 

In this webinar, Jens Puschhof, PhD, of the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) will discuss how lessons learned from organoid biology can be applied to Organ-on-a-Chip research and examine areas where these two technologies are being combined with great potential for synergy. In particular, he will share aspects of his team’s work studying the impact of cancer-associated bacteria in colorectal cancer metastasis using Emulate Organ-Chip models. 

Key discussion points / learnings: 

  • The synergies that exist between organoids and Organ-on-a-Chip technology 
  • How insights from organoid research can be translated to Organ-Chips  
  • How Organ-Chips can be used to study the cancer-microbiome
