Researchers use stem cells to grow organoids—3D miniature organs—in cell culture. They use these to gain insight into organ development and disease, and to screen new drug therapies. As new technologies emerge, scientists produce increasingly complex organoids that mimic human tissues more closely. As they do so, they step into new medical research frontiers that have the potential to revolutionize human health.
Download this poster from The Scientist’s Creative Services Team to learn how researchers use the latest technology to create and validate organoids and use them to answer a wide range of research questions.
