A major step has been taken towards developing functional miniature versions of human organs in a Petri dish which can be used to shed light on the processes involved in the genesis of diseases.
Researchers have used machine learning to predict the conditions needed for stem cells to develop a certain way, which could be used to grow 3D organ models.
A new platform has the potential to better understand what dictates the invasive behaviour of brain tumours.
Combining organoid and organ-on-a-chip technologies, researchers have created a model which will allow them to study eye diseases and treatments for the retina.
A ‘bronchi-on-a-chip’ has been created by researchers to identify the processes of bronchospasms which could aid in respiratory disease therapies.
Researchers have created a new organoid model that can be used to study systems such as the heart and the effects of drugs on these cells.
Thanks to new developments with induced pluripotent stem cells enabling generation of human neurons, scientists can more precisely analyse the effects that chemicals have on human cells. This article describes research into the effects of cannabis on neuronal development and implications of its legalisation in Canada.
Researchers have grown identical brain organoids for the first time, opening avenues for neurological research.
Beyond ‘simple’ biology – turning organoids, spheroids, and 3D tissue models into physiologically relevant high-content assays for drug discovery
Drug discovery is still hampered by the routine use of cell-based models that often fail to recapitulate the truly relevant biological complexity of the corresponding disease. Just moving from two- (2D) towards three-dimensional (3D) cell culture model systems like spheroids and organoids is not enough to generate truly representative and…
The basic premise of drug discovery screening necessitates that the biological assays upon which it depends can be performed in a reproducible manner. In addition, the techniques employed must generate results that are biologically relevant and actionable.
Application note: Production of human induced pluripotent stem cell-derived cortical neurospheres in the DASbox® Mini Bioreactor System
There is substantial interest in the scientific community in using human induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPSC)-derived neural cells to study basic mechanisms of brain development, neuronal function, and drug-induced effects. In vitro-generated brain organoids are promising models, because they show a remarkable degree of maturation and can be kept in…
