(UTC+01:00) Brussels, Copenhagen, Madrid, Paris

During this 5th webinar, we will zoom in on the use of high throughput organoid drug screening for various applications such as personalized medicine, and the development of breast organoids in fundamental research

- Prof. Dr. Christophe Deben is the head of the Tumoroid Screening lab at the University of Antwerp and played a key role in establishing and leading the UZA/UAntwerp tumor organoid biobank. He co-founded Orbits Oncology, developing an image and data analysis platform for organoid drug screening using live-cell imaging. Additionally, he is the co-head of DrugVision.AI, a university service platform that facilitates high-throughput organoid drug screening for both academic and industry partners. His work is pivotal in advancing the application of innovative technologies in cancer research.

- Dr. Colinda Scheele established her independent lab at VIB Center for Cancer Biology and KU Leuven Dpt of Oncology. She pioneered unbiased lineage tracing approaches, 3D whole organ imaging techniques and intravital microscopy strategies to study mammary stem cell dynamics and branching morphogenesis and received several awards for her work. Her lab studies how healthy tissue architecture prevents or promotes the different steps of tumorigenesis and uses advanced (intravital) imaging approaches and organoid technology. These tools are complemented with omics and quantitative modelling to further elucidate the mechanisms of tissue transformation.

The RE-Place educational Webinars are organized to promote the use and development of New Approach Methodologies in Belgium by putting the existing expertise in the spotlight! The Webinars are open to all interested parties including scientists, regulators, the authorities and the public.

Participation is free of charge, but registration is mandatory here.

All Webinars are recorded and placed on the RE-Place YouTube Channel via https://www.youtube.com/@re-place1330
