Targeting therapy resistance in colorectal cancer derived organoid-stroma models

Dr. Farin and his team study cellular and molecular processes involved in the development of colorectal cancer. Main research focus is the communication of cells within the tumor microenvironment. Patient-specific organoid models are established by expansion of primary cells from tumor tissues. Biobanks of organoids and other stromal cells then are used to model tissue interactions that affect tumor characteristics and response to therapy, including immunotherapy. Genetic and pharmacologic perturbation experiments are performed to overcome resistance and identify context-specific tumor vulnerabilities.
