by University of California - San Diego
3D human gut organoids reveal molecular system that keeps intestinal linings sealed, demonstrate how the system breaks down and how it can be strengthened with the diabetes drug metformin

Researchers Create Functional Mini-Liver by 3D Bioprinting

by FAPESP

Technique developed at Human Genome and Stem Cell Research Center, funded by FAPESP and hosted by the University of São Paulo, produced hepatic tissue in the laboratory in only 90 days and could become an alternative to organ transplantation in future

Researchers Grow Active Mini-Brain-Networks

by Cell Press

Although the organoids aren't actually "thinking," the researchers' new tool--which detects neural activity using organoids--could provide a method for understanding human brain function

Growing Embryonic Tissues on a Chip

by Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne

When it comes to modeling the early developmental processes of the human embryo, things become complicated
