The SLU Committee for Global Animal Diseases invites you to a seminar entitled “Organoids as models for infectious disease”.

Infectious disease is a common problem in animal production worldwide and is further complicated by the development of drug resistance by several pathogens. Lately, organoids, in vitro cultured 3D organ-like systems, have been developed and used to study host-pathogen interaction.

In this seminar, you will learn more about how organoids can be used to study infections with bacteria, parasites and viruses.


  • Bert Devriendt, Ghent University – Investigating interactions of pathogenic coli with the host epithelium using porcine enteroids
  • Mikael Sellin, Uppsala University –  Resolving Gut Bacterial Infection Dynamics using Human Enteroids and Colonoids
  • Jana Grüttner, Uppsala University – Host-parasite interactions between Giardia intestinalis and human intestinal organoids
  • Marie Hagbom, Lindköping University – Human nose organoids as a model to study respiratory infections


Please notify us of the following by Monday May 22 at the latest by emailing cgd@slu.se

• I would like to attend on-site and have fika. Please indicate any allergies.

• I would like to attend on Zoom. Please send me a link.
