  • UCCH Biospecimen collection

    The UCCH has established a biobank from patients suffering from hematologic and solid tumors. The biobank is headed by Department of Oncology and Hematology. Further details regarding the available specimens in the UCCH Biobank and the oncological specimen collections please refere to the UCCH Biobank coordinator:

  • Tumor-on-a-chip technology

    The tumor-on-a-chip is a microbioreactor. Human tumor cells grow in it as tumoroids and thus enable the testing of various drugs and their influence on the growth of the tumor cells. For further information about this new technology, please contact:

  • Tumoroid platform

    Pre-clinical cancer models provide a platform to study tumor biology, discover biomarkers, test potential therapies, develop personalized medicine approaches, investigate resistance mechanisms, and potentially reduce the reliance on animal testing. In the Laboratory of Radiobiology & Experimental Radiation Oncology , we have developed pre-clinical models - such as ex vivo tissue slice cultures, tumoroids and patient-derived organoids - for tumors of the breast, pancreas, prostate, head & neck and brain.


  • Xenograft tumor histopathology and biobank

    This technology platform provides a wide experience and a huge collection of paraffin-embedded specimens from xenograft analysis. For further details about the provided services please contact:
