Technology Networks recently interviewed Soumita Das, associate professor at the University of California San Diego, to learn about the organoid models her team is developing.
Often referred to as “mini-organs”, organoids are tiny self-organizing 3D assemblies of cells which show some physiological features of a specific organ. As an intermediate between traditional 2D in vitro cell cultures and animal models, organoids are a useful tool for several applications. Download this infographic to find out more.
