Intestinal organoids or mini-guts can be used as models to evaluate transport and interactions between dietary ingredients with the gut wall. That was discovered by a multidisciplinary research team, led by Prof. Jerry Wells of Animal Science Grou...
Porcine ileal organoids grown by Wageningen University for advanced in vitro studies in the PIGSs project.
Examples of ileal organoids from pigs grown in 3D matrigel from partner Wageningen University. This advanced in vitro model will be used to analyse the mechanism of host-cell interactions and virulence in work package 2 of...
Profile of Dr. Manouk Vrieling, WP leader of WP4 in the PIGSs project
Primary porcine respiratory epithelial cell models used in the PIGSs project to study host–pathobiont interactions in the respiratory tract: PCLS model.
The PIGSs project aims to improve our current understanding of the interplay of commensals, pathobionts, and keystone pathogens in the respiratory tract. Studies to dissect these complex processes should be carried out in respective animal models,...
