Tumor Slice Organoids for Cancer Precision Therapy

Original webinar date: February 21, 2023
Guest name: Chen-Yuan Dong, PhD

Chen-Yuan Dong completed his PhD in physics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1998. After completing postdoctoral training at MIT as an NIH postdoctoral fellow, Dr. Dong joined the Department of Physic at National Taiwan University where he is now a Distinguished Professor of Physics. He specializes in the development and applications of optical microscopy for biological and biomedical research. Dr. Dong is a Fellow of both Optica (formerly Optical Society of America) and the International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE). He also serves on the editorial board of the Journal of Biomedical Optics.

In this webinar, Dr. Dong will:

  • Discuss how cancer treatment decisions are made largely based on clinical guidelines
  • Explain how tumor slice organoids are a promising approach for delivering precise cancer therapy through biomarker search and phenotypic cancer drug susceptibility testing
  • Explore how rapid processing of tumor specimen into sliced organoids is important in preserving morphological and molecular fidelity
