Organoids: Stepping Up from Cells to Organs

Discover how important organoids have become to disease research and drug discovery.




Organoids are tissue-like structures generated using 3-D cell culture. Their structures and cell compositions resemble in vivo organs, making them promising models for a host of applications. Organoids allow researchers to examine questions that were too technically challenging or time-consuming to address using 2-D cell culture or animal models. Currently, scientists use organoids to investigate developmental biology, disease modeling, regenerative medicine, and drug discovery.
