Bavaria: in vitro brain tumor research network Featured

Scientists from the Department of Neuropathology at the University Hospital Regensburg led by Professor Markus Riemenschneider have developed tumour disease models in the form of organoids in the Petri dish. The  cells derived from tumour cells of patients. The researchers want to use this model to investigate the interaction between healthy cells and tumour cells in more detail and test new therapeutic methods.

For their work, the scientists are cooperating with the Universities of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Munich, and Passau in a research association.

In February 2019, the researchers received a grant for their development from the Bavarian State Ministry of Science and the Arts to the amount of 352,000 euros for a four-year term.
