ORGANOIDS AND ORGAN-ON-CHIP
Advanced 3D in vitro models that mimic the structure and function of a human organ emerge as promising tools for drug discovery, disease modeling and personalised medicine, by replacing animal testing. GATE wants to bring these high-throughput screening tools closer to biotechnology, pharmaceutical, cosmetics and chemical companies.
Gene therapy seeks to modify or introduce genes into a patient for treating, preventing or curing disease. U(Z)Gent develops gene therapy for epilepsy, hereditary blindness and deafness.
