Projecttitel: hOrganoid for animal-free food hazard identification analysis
Projectnummer: LWV19125
Missie: Gewaardeerd, gezond en veilig voedsel
MMIP: D4: Duurzame en veilige verwerking
Looptijd: 2020 – 2023

This project aims to develop human intestinal organoids for application in the area of (agri)food & health for animal free research on hazard identification. 
We aim to optimise our current organoid culturing protocols, including development of growth in organ-on-chip devices, and validate these human organoid models as predictive models for hazard identification analyses of new and existing compounds intended for human intake as well as of (emerging) contaminants in the food chain using food relevant show cases.
