Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)

The challenges of IBD drug development

Intestinal inflammation is among the most prevalent health indications in the western world, comprising a range of diseases, including inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Efficient treatments for IBD, however, are lacking.

Unfortunately, the exact mechanisms behind IBD are poorly understood owing to its multifactorial etiology; Studying such an intricate disease successfully can never be achieved with a simple culture system.

The complexity of the disease, combined with the lack of suitable models makes studying IBD and the development of preventative or therapeutic agents challenging.

Drug Development Partnerships

Drug development partnerships to find novel IBD therapeutics

Why a 3D IBD model?


There is an urgent need for physiologically relevant intestinal in vitro culture systems with modular biological complexity.

  • Existing models for IBD and the gastrointestinal system are often a compromise between biological relevance and scalability
  • Simple 2D models fail to recapitulate the key aspects of the intestine and of the compromised immune system. Animal models have limited translatability.
  • In addition, different phases of drug development demand varying complexity and screenability of the cell culture model.

With our ground-breaking 3D human tissue disease models and expertise, we bring disease-relevance and human complexity to the root of IBD drug development.

Our partnership with Roche


Together with Roche, we recently started a partnership to develop human disease models to characterize novel compounds in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).

We will be responsible for developing tissue-based disease models and assays in the OrganoPlate® , our proprietary organ-on-a-chip platform that increases the predictability of biomarkers and reduces animal use in scientific testing. Roche will gain access to technology, disease models, and scientific results.



Our collaboration

Translate disease & pathway insight into screenable assays

Confirm disease hypothesis causality with cellular assays that target key processes in IBD and accurately predict disease state.


Our solution

A partnership towards novel IBD therapeutics


Target Validation and Discovery Studies


High-throughput screening to discovery novel targets, pathways, compound hits and drugs using our
robust and screenable assays.

Using a smart library, we can identify hits among 2460 compounds with a set-up of:

  • Automated cell seeding and exposure
  • 164 OrganoPlates®
  • 6560 chips
