fluorescent organoids

The laboratory specializes in growing gastrointestinal stem cells, and organoids are a new model to study their behavior outside of the body. We took these images in general to identify their growth characteristics and overall morphology. By growing the organoids, we can study the effects of drugs, cytokines or nutrients on their function. The image shows that we can generate organoids from individual human patients afflicted by cancer to test new chemotherapies to provide individualized patient testing for cancer treatment.
