EDIReX | EurOPDX Distributed Infrastructure for Research on patient-derived cancer Xenografts | Life sciences
Transnational Access Info:

Patient-derived tumour xenografts (PDX) are now widely embraced by the scientific community as important preclinical tools for cancer biomarker discovery and drug development. However, they are costly and time-consuming to develop. As such, data sharing and collaboration has been essential to the growth of this research field, but is still limited by a lack of central guidance and suitable infrastructures.

Altogether, the members of the EurOPDX Consortium have established a panel of more than 1,500 subcutaneous and orthotopic PDX models for more than 30 pathologies. These models and their phenotypic and molecular traits have been poorly visible outside of publications in scientific journals or presentations at congresses, and are so far only accessible through discrete collaborative projects.

As part of the EDIReX grant, 3 trans-national access calls will be launched by the EurOPDX Research Infrastructure between 2018 and 2020. TA offers academic and industry researchers from Europe and worldwide the opportunity to remotely access the patient-derived tumour xenografts (PDX) models, services, and expertise of the EurOPDX Research Infrastructure.

The 1st TA call is open (as of October 31st, 2018). Deadline for proposal submission: 31st January 2019

1st call access will be provided in 2 ways:

  • SAMPLE: offers the shipment of frozen PDX models to academic laboratories for successful applicants.

Models that are available for SAMPLE access can be viewed on the new EurOPDX Data Portal: https://dataportal.europdx.eu

  • DEPOSIT: offers successful applicants the opportunity to deposit their PDX models into the EurOPDX Research Infrastructure biobank and Data Portal for increased visibility.


As of November 1st, 2018, 644 models from 2 EurOPDX Research Infrastructure partners have been made available for transnational access. To browse currently available models, use the newly designed EurOPDX Data Portal. More models are being added to the EurOPDX Data Portal continually, so check back regularly!

Two further calls for access will be launched, in October 2019 and Spring 2020 respectively.
