Lab description

Organoids - "A new window into disease and drug discovery"
Hadassah Organoid center, established in 2020, aims to develop a versatile platform based on the Organoid Technology, accessible to academic and pharmaceutical scientists.


Organoids are novel, self-organizing 3D structures, derived from human tissue samples, that form higher similarity to human tissue structure and physiology than classical in vitro models


  • Expanded, frozen and thawed on demand
  • Grown in a relatively short period of time allowing rapid results
  • Allows high throughput drug screening
  • Fast-track process for ethics committee approval

The Hadassah Organoid Bank

  • Head and Neck
  • Esophagus
  • Stomach
  • Small intestine
  • Colon
  • Endometrium
  • Breast
  • Ovary
  • Pancreas
  • Cartilage
  • Additional tissue models on request
