Company profile

Hubrecht Organoid Technology (HUB) is a spin-off company of the Hubrecht Institute, KNAW and University Medical Center Utrecht. HUB is founded on the pioneering work of Prof. Dr. Hans Clevers who discovered methods to grow stem cell-derived human  epithelial ‘mini-organs’ (organoids) from tissues of patients with various diseases.

Key to the development of the Organoid technology was the discovery of LGR5+ intestinal stem cells by the Clevers lab. These HUB Organoids proved to be both genetically and phenotypically stable in cell culture and are amenable to all standard experimental manipulations. HUB Organoids are generally expected over time to fundamentally impact the whole drug development process, ranging from pre-clinical screening and clinical stratification towards companion diagnostic and even regenerative medicine

HUB is responsible for development and commercialization of the Organoid technology in the broadest sense. HUB is collaborating with a growing number of pharma and biotech partners in a range of diseases, including Cystic Fibrosis and oncology. HUB has the ambition to significantly grow in the near future, with the aim to broaden the global use of HUB organoids for different purposes.

Agency or sales calls are not appreciated
