- 2021.12.10 Publication on the Intestinal Explant Barrier Chip (IEBC) became available on line. The wells-plate or microfluidic chip setup allows monitoring many processes that take part at the gut wall, such as transport, barrier function, metabolic activity, hormone secretion, and the inflammatory response. Special attention will be paid to the possibility to study the impact of your compound on the gut tissue as well as on the interaction of the gut wall with the microbiome.
□ Intestinal explant barrier chip: long-term intestinal absorption screening in a novel microphysiological system using tissue explants.
On Tuesday, November 9, 2021 TNO's webinar In vitro microbiome and ex vivo intestinal models entitled "WHAT'S NEW IN IN VITRO MICROBIOME AND EX VIVO INTESTINAL MODELS FOR GUT HEALTH" took place.

- 2020.12.16 TNO and Janssen signed a letter of intent in which the parties declare their intention to explore multiple topics for the development of new collaborations. The selected topics represent technological areas in which both parties foresee innovations that will contribute to breakthroughs in our understanding and precision treatment of disease, as well as health domains in which unmet needs require new approaches, and accelerating drug development. In addition, the parties are seeking collaboration on topics of mutual interest in which joint efforts may add up to more than the sum of the parts.
