Organoids are cultured cells in a three-dimensional (3D) environment that model features of organ function, composition and development. Since organoids can better recapitulate the signaling and morphological cues that occur within the human body, scientists have turned to using organoids to study normal and pathological conditions, and as a method to test potential therapeutics for human disease. Organoid Research Techniques, a new Wiley Essential Knowledge Briefing, describes the benefits and challenges in using various organoid-based techniques.
