High-Resolution mRNA and Secretome Atlas of Human Enteroendocrine Cells

Researchers from our partner institution Utrecht University have worked together with researchers from the Hubrecht Institute and in collaboration with other research teams and generated an in-depth description of the hormone-producing cells in the human gut. 

These are very rare and unique cells to different species of animals which makes them difficult to study. An extensive toolbox has been developed by the researchers to study human hormone-producing cells in tiny versions of the gut grown in the lab (organoids). These tools allowed them to uncover secrets of the human gut.

More information about this research

The study findings and results are presented in the scientific journal Cell.

Cancellation Radboud Summer School

X-omics is one of the course leaders of the Radboud Summer School, in particular of the summer course “Integrative X-omics Analyses Empowering Personalized Healthcare”. The course was supposed to take place from 6 till 10 July 2020. Unfortunately we have to bring you the news that Radboud Summer School has come to the decision to cancel this year’s edition, due to the global coronavirus outbreak. 

We look forward to welcoming all of those interested at the Radboud Summer School in 2021.
