Hans Clevers Announced as Plenary Speaker at ECB2020


Hans Clevers is group leader at the Hubrecht Institute for Developmental Biology and Stem Cell Research and at the Princess Máxima Center for Pediatric Oncology. He is also professor of Molecular Genetics at the University Medical Center Utrecht and Utrecht University and Oncode Investigator.


The Clevers group has pioneered methods to study the molecular mechanisms of tissue development and cancer of various organs.
A major contribution is the development of organoids made from adult Lgr5 stem cells. This is a tissue culture technique that avoids the use of animal models

IBS2020

The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) initiated the International Biotechnology Symposium (IBS) in Rome in 1960. Its aim was to highlight the role of chemistry in life science and biotechnology. The IBS Congress was held every 4 years, rotating between different continents. It soon became acknowledged internationally as the prime biotechnology conference. Since 2008, the IBS series has been convened biennially to address the unprecedented progress of biotechnology. The 19th IBS (IBS 2020) will be held in conjunction with the 19th European Congress on Biotechnology (ECB 2020) in Maastricht, the Netherlands from 28th June – July 1st.

Standardization of the preanalytical phase of DNA extraction from fixed tissue for next-generation sequencing analyses - New Biotechnology Banner

EFB Journal New Biotechnology

Diverse Human VH antibody fragments with bio-therapeutic properties from the Crescendo Mouse

We describe the ‘Crescendo Mouse’, a human VH transgenic platform combining an engineered heavy chain locus with diverse human heavy chain V, D and J genes, a modified mouse Cγ1 gene and complete 3’ regulatory region, in a triple knock-out (TKO) mouse background devoid of endogenous immunoglobulin expression. The addition of the engineered heavy chain locus to the TKO mouse restored B cell development, giving rise to functional B cells that responded to immunization with a diverse response that comprised entirely ‘heavy chain only’ antibodies. Heavy chain variable (VH) domain libraries were rapidly mined using phage display technology, yielding diverse high-affinity human VH that had undergone somatic hypermutation, lacked aggregation and showed enhanced expression in E. coli. The Crescendo Mouse produces human VH fragments, or Humabody® VH, with excellent bio-therapeutic potential, as exemplified here by the generation of antagonistic Humabody® VH specific for human IL17A and IL17RA.
