Organoid models, a powerful new tool for cancer researchers
An organoid is a 3D structure in which cells spontaneously self-organize into properly differentiated functional cell types and progenitors, mimicking organs in the body.
These 3D cellular models provide researchers the opportunity to better understand complex biology in a physiologically relevant context – with great potential in many applications, including cancer research.

It is now well accepted that the microbes that live upon and within us play a considerable role in our body’s physiology. In cancer, rapidly emerging evidence suggests that the microbiome influences disease progression in a myriad of direct and indirect ways. In this listicle, we look at recent research developments directed towards exploring the emerging
