Culturing and Characterising Organoids – What Do We Need to Know?

Organoids are cell-derived, 3D in vitro models that are cultured to recapitulate structural and functional aspects of the in vivo tissue they are intended to represent. Organoids are not new to research labs, although there has been much hype about them in recent years, given their vast and largely untapped potential to reveal novel insights about biological processes and disease mechanisms, as well as serve as models for drug discovery and development, including drug target identification and validation as well as pre-clinical toxicity and efficacy studies.  In previous articles, we looked at the history of organoids, and outlined the typical workflow for their development from...

In Vitro Blood Brain Barrier Models for Drug Development
