Consortium-GUTVIBRATIONS

The GUTVIBRATIONS Consortium

GUTVIBRATIONS is a multidisciplinary international consortium funded by the European Commission. The consortium consists of 7 esteemed European partners in the fields of academia (Amsterdam UMC, Technical University of Denmark, University of Leuven, KTH Royal Institute of Technology) and industry (UniQure Biopharma BV, BIOLAMINA AB and STEMCELL Technologies UK ltd.). With our team of experts in the fields of organ-on-chip technology, 3D printing, bioengineering, organoid technology, virology, immunology and cell culturing, GUTVIBRATIONS aims to take organ-on-chip technology to the next level in the biomedical industry.

*Check application deadlines per vacancy below.

GUTVIBRATIONS is divided into Work Packages:
  • 1. BUILD
  • 2. SHARE
  • 3. DEFEND
  • 4. SPREAD
  • 5. INFECT
  • 6. TREAT
  • 7. STACK
  • 8. INDUSTRIALISE

Key objective: to provide STACKS platform and technical solutions for the different WPs along with scaling up the platform for medium (from 12 to 24-well) throughput.

 

This will be achieved by:

  • Design and optimisation of medium-throughput STACKS plate
  • Optimising Biosilk nanomembrane and network incorporation.
  • Ensuring availability of STACKS plates for the consortium during GUTVIBRATIONS

Key objective: the creation of a gut epithelial-mesenchyme co-culture model.

 

This will be achieved by:

  • Shaping “crypt-villi” structures on a Biosilk network by microscale structural patterning.
  • Establishing gut epithelial culture on structurally patterned Biosilk containing gut-specific fibroblasts.
  • Adapting existing media to support the epithelial-mesenchyme co-culture

Key objective: to build a human gut model that recapitulates the in vivo intestinal physiology including cellular immune responses.

 

This will be achieved by:

  • Extension of organoid-derived epithelial monolayer model with a nanomembrane, the Biosilk network, and immune cells to form a gut epithelial- immune cell co-culture model.
  • Characterisation of immune responses in this model.
  • Combining the epithelial-immune cell model with the mesenchyme model from WP2 to create a gut mucosa model

Key objective: to construct a BBB-brain model that closely resembles the in vivo physiology of the structural and chemical barrier between the systemic blood circulation and the brain components.

 

This will be achieved by:

  • The development of a human BBB model containing human brain endothelial cells, linked by pericytes, astrocytes, and microglia within a Biosilk network.
  • Constructing a BBB-brain model by combining the BBB model and brain organoids within a STACKS platform.
  • The development of media for the human BBB and combined BBB-brain models

Key objective: to show the application of the gut mucosa model and the BBB-brain model developed in WP3 and WP4 as infectious diseases models.

 

This will be accomplished by infection with three viruses (EV, HIV, and HuNoV) that make use of the gut-brain axis to show that productive infection is possible in the gut mucosa model and/or the BBB-brain organoid model.

Key objective: to present a showcase for antiviral testing against viruses that interact with the gut-brain axis.


This will be achieved by:

  • Assessing toxicity of small molecules in the gut mucosa model and the BBB-brain model developed in WP3 and WP4.
  • Inhibiting virus infections with known antivirals in the infection models established in WP5

Key objectives: the gut mucosa model developed in WP3 and the BBB-brain model developed in WP4 will be combined to create a complex human gut-brain axis OoC.

 

Viral infection along this axis will be assessed as a proof-of- principle application of the OoC. Furthermore, requirements for specialised media for combining the different organ systems together will be elucidated.

Key objective: to upgrade the STACKS platform to make it suitable for industrial applications.

 

This will be achieved by:

  • Scaling up the STACKS plates to a 96-well format for high throughput screening
  • Ensuring compatibility of the 96-well STACKS with pipetting robots.
  • Adapting the 96-well plate format to a polystyrene base for high throughput manufacture
Our mission

GUTVIBRATIONS mission is to develop, a next-generation gut-brain axis organ-on-chip for virology. This multi-organ system will provide an animal-free solution for modelling human diseases and pre-clinical drug development.

We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.

 

GUTVIBRATIONS is a multidisciplinary international consortium funded by the European Commission. The consortium consists of 7 esteemed European partners in the fields of academia (Amsterdam UMC, Technical University of Denmark, University of Leuven, KTH Royal Institute of Technology) and industry (UniQure Biopharma BV, BIOLAMINA AB and STEMCELL Technologies UK ltd.). With our team of experts in the fields of organ-on-chip technology, 3D printing, bioengineering, organoid technology, virology, immunology and cell culturing, GUTVIBRATIONS aims to take organ-on-chip technology to the next level in the biomedical industry.

 

Project description

Third-cycle subject: biotechnology

 

A doctoral position is being advertised for the recently approved EU project GUTVIBRATIONS, which aims to develop new methods for producing tissue models to be used for medical research. The main purpose of this doctoral project is to develop methods for culturing cells in a relevant 3D environment using the support of recombinant silk. Spider silk proteins have the unique ability to organize itself into a material with advantageous properties. Hedhammar's research group has developed a method that enables simple, efficient and fast integration of cells into 3D culture by the silk proteins forming a network of microfibers that are similar to the natural extracellular matrix. The group has also developed a method for producing thin and fibrous membranes that are similar to the natural basement membrane on which endothelium and epithelium grow. The silk protein used for this is functionalized with a motif from fibronectin, which promotes cell binding. The focus of this project is to use silk to create defined microenvironments to produce models of the boundary of different tissues, such as the gut and brain. These should be used to study the interaction of immune cells and viruses in tissue environments.

 

The doctoral student will be supervised by: Prof. My Hedhammar.
