Spotlight on organoids

Organoids offer a unique opportunity to model drugs and diseases in vitro, comprising of a range of organ-specific cell types that are closely biomimetic, enabling more accurate drug testing and disease modelling than traditional 2D cultures.This spotlight will aim to review technological developments that have allowed organoids to become a viable research tool as well as remaining challenges in their production. We will also cover the varied applications for which organoids could be utilized, and investigate what the future could hold for organoids in research and clinical translation.
