In this edition, Rudy Dekeyser – partner at LSP and one of the key driving forces behind the foundation of Oncode Institute - and Oncode Investigator Jeroen de Ridder reflect on Oncode’s proactive valorization approach. Next, you get to know Oncode Investigator Carl Figdor (Radboudumc) who explains his love for science and is developing cutting edge technologies in cell therapy. Our cutting edge science is also featured in this edition. We visited the lab of Oncode Investigator Marvin Tanenbaum who takes us on a journey about the regulation of gene expression.

First patient-derived organoid model for cervical cancer
Researchers from the group of Oncode Investigator Hans Clevers (Hubrecht Institute) developed the first patient-derived organoid model for cervical cancer. They also modelled the healthy human cervix using organoids. In close collaboration with the UMC Utrecht, Princess Máxima Center for pediatric oncology and the Netherlands Cancer Institute, the researchers used the organoid-based platform to study sexually transmitted infections for a herpes virus. The model can potentially also be used to study the human papillomavirus (HPV), which is one of the main causes of cervical cancer.
