Organoids Articles

[Free Poster] Reagents for Organoid Research

Organoid models include three-dimensional (3D) cell culture systems that closely resemble in vivo organ or tissue. These 3D systems reproduce the complex spatial morphology of a differentiated tissue to allow biologically relevant cell-cell and cell-matrix...

Penetrating Cancer Stem Cells For Lung Cancer Treatment

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related mortality worldwide. Despite the recent advances in cancer research, about 70% of the patients with lung cancer present with locally advanced or metastatic disease at the time of the diagnosis. Although chemotherapy...

Organoid – a potential in vitro model to examine viral infections

A recent article about infection of bat organoids by SARS-CoV-2 The first organoid culture of the intestinal epithelium of horseshoe bat of Rhinolophus sinicus species was created and was used to investigate the characteristics of SARS-CoV-2 in bats., published in a...

Organoid models suggest SARS-CoV-2 infects human intestinal cells

A research group at the Hubrecht Institute, Erasmus MC University Medical Centre, and Maastricht University in the Netherlands used 3D intestine organoids to elucidate the infection pathway of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that caused COVID-19. Their findings may shed light...
