 Project objective

Mass spectrometry-based proteomics and next generation DNA sequencing emerged as two powerful and complementary technologies in biology. I was the first to integrate these technologies in the area of epigenetics to identify and functionally characterize proteins that interact with post-translational modifications on histones and (hydroxy)methylated DNA (so-called chromatin ‘readers’). My pioneering work revealed that an intricate networks of transcription factors, chromatin modifications and chromatin readers orchestrate dynamic gene expression programs during embryonic stem cell differentiation. The next big challenge is to understand the molecular mechanisms, which help to control maintenance and differentiation of adult stem cells as an integral part of an organ. Intestinal organoid cultures recently emerged as a paradigm to study adult stem cell maintenance and differentiation. These ‘miniguts’ can be cultured in vitro and contain all the different cell types that are present in the mouse small intestinal epithelium. Recently it was shown that small-molecule driven perturbations can be used to obtain organoids which are strongly enriched for specific intestinal cell types. This system thus provides a perfect opportunity to study for the first time and in a controlled manner, adult stem cell maintenance and (de)differentiation. Using small molecule-driven perturbations and a unique combination of ‘omics’ technologies, which are embedded in my department, I will provide a systems-wide view of the molecular (epigenetic) mechanisms that orchestrate cell fate changes in intestinal organoids. This integrative approach will identify the major regulatory networks that define the remarkable cellular plasticity of the mouse small intestinal epithelium. Beyond this basic scientific goal, our work will also have profound implications for cancer research and regenerative medicine, both of which are characterized by changes in adult stem cell homeostasis.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "SYSORGANOID" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
