Gastrointestinal Experimental Model Systems Core

Master
Content

The Gastrointestinal Experimental Model Systems (GEMS) Core is organized to encompass an enteroid/organoid subcore and a gnotobiotic subcore. This core offers turnkey access to organoids/enteroid technologies to TMC-DDC researchers. This includes samples (enteroids, organoids), reagents (specialized growth media, etc.), training, and consultative expertise. The core also provides access to gnotobiotic facilities and animals, training and consultative expertise.

Researchers are able to access enteroid and organoid service via the DDC iLab portal.
