Hubrecht Institute

Uppsalalaan 8
3584 CT Utrecht

Short description

The Hubrecht Institute is a research institute of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW). Research at the Hubrecht Institute focuses on developmental biology and stem cells at the organismal, cellular, genetic, genomic and proteomic level. Basic insight into development and into stem cells will provide insight into (human) disease, such as cancer. The Hubrecht Institute is affiliated with the University Medical Center Utrecht and has close connections with the Utrecht University, e.g. in the Cancer Genomics and Developmental Biology (CGDB) Master's and PhD programs.

    Utrecht researchers repair cystic fibrosis

    A unique result: Utrecht researchers have genetically repaired cultured 'miniature intestines' or organoids of two cystic fibrosis (CF) patients in the laboratory. "It represents a key step towards stem cell therapy using genetically repaired cells for diseases caused by a single defective ... more

    Pancreatic stem cells isolated from mice

    Scientists have succeeded in growing stem cells that have the ability to develop into two different types of cells that make up a healthy pancreas. The research team led by Dr. Hans Clevers of the Hubrecht Institute, The Netherlands, have isolated and grown stem cells from the pancreases of ... more
