Hans Clevers (NL): Lab-grown Human Organs (06:20)

FREE PREVIEW

Together with his team at the University Medical Center in Utrecht, Dutch molecular geneticist Hans Clevers developed the world's first "intestinoids" for testing drugs on active human intestinal tissue. Since then, he adapted this technology for multiple additional human tissues. The advantages of the invention are twofold: First, intestinoids allow care providers to test even aggressive courses of treatment without hurting the patient. Second, the intestinoids allow for a "personalised medicine" approach to treatment, as they are uniquely matched to the genetic make up of one patient only.
