In hDMT the competencies/expertises of all partners are close together with very longstanding and productive collaborations. This makes us unique in the world.
Stem cell technology
hDMT houses world class stem cell technology, enabling integration of human genetics in the models:
- Adult stem cells from patients in organoid culture (Hans Clevers lab);
- Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS) derived from patients (Christine Mummery’s lab).
Supporting platform technologies
In addition, all the expertise and equipment for drug target discovery, validation and testing service as well as microfluidics, microfabrication, microelectronics and production facilities are present in the Institute. Fundamental research groups developing supporting platform technologies, and a strong integrated clinical expertise form also part of the Institute. Within hDMT expertise is present in the manufacturing process/production/sales of chips components and stem cell products (disposables).
