Modelling breast cancer using patient-derived tumour organoids

In this presentation, Dr Jarde will describe the successful establishment of a patient-derived breast cancer organoid bioresource and it’s in depth characterisation at both genomic, molecular and proteomic levels.

Dr Thierry Jarde is a Laboratory Head in the Department of Anatomy and Developmental Biology at Monash University. He is a cancer cell biologist who has worked for the last 15 years with organoids and mouse models to study stem cell function in health and disease.

He completed his doctoral studies at the School of Pharmacy (Clermont-Ferrand) in France before conducting postdoctoral training under the supervision of Professor Trevor Dale at the School of Biosciences (Cardiff University, UK) and Professor Helen Abud at the Biomedicine Discovery Institute (Monash University) where he studied the role of  WNT and NRG1 signalling in cancer stem cell biology.

Thierry is also the Director of the Organoid program at the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute. He collaborates with clinicians to grow organoids from human breast and gastrointestinal tissues. These organoids are currently being used for a variety of biological studies, including drug testing.

This event will be held online via Zoom.
