1.Introduction about the Lab

Disease models serve the fundamental research tools for investigating the genetic basis of human diseases. Their fidelity, reproducibility, and accuracy lie in the key to the correct path to uncovering the precise underlying pathobiology. Westlake Disease Modeling Laboratory (WeModel Lab) strives to generate robust human disease models through cutting-edge tissue culture methods incorporated with bioengineering tools. Focusing on cancer, developmental disease, and rare genetic diseases, the lab incorporates scalable organoid, stem cell, and cancer cell culture systems to establish long-term and short-term culture of primary human patient samples for different scientific applications. WeModel Lab aims at delivering high-quality models that are comprehensively characterized using modern genomics and phenotyping tools, that can serve as starting materials for mechanism exploration of important disease areas. As a core division of Westlake Intelligent Biomedical Labs, WeModel Lab adopts a new teaming format that fosters cross-disciplinary technology integration and collaborations with multiple laboratories at the Westlake University. Its core members will receive extensive support, advice and mentorship from the leadership team (Drs. Shang Cai, Qi Xie, and Xin Jin), and develop skill sets in conducting high-throughput, large-scale research.
