We have previously established slice cultures from human tumors derived from surgery and biopsies and established methods to study their individual susceptibility to treatments with X-ray, heavy ions, chemotherapy, and novel biologicals. The open access of the system allows for such treatments, but also for life imaging. Deep sequencing has been used to better understand mechanism of tumor resistance to individual therapies. The ultimate goal is to predict the most effective in a personalized way.
