Three-dimensional (3D) organoid development is one of the most important advancements in drug discovery research to date. The ability to self-organize and mimic functional organ cell types is believed to better represent in vivo biology than 2D monolayer cell cultures. As such, organoids are becoming increasingly important in the fields of cancer research, neurobiology, stem cell research, and drug discovery. They provide important insights into the mechanisms of tissue development and disease, and they present a very valuable approach for biological research and drug development.
