Cancer Modeling Meets Human Organoid Technology

Hans Clevers (Hubrecht Institute) and David Tuveson (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory), experts in the field of stem cells and organoids, have written a review on the use the organoids in cancer research. These ‘mini-organs in a dish’ can be used to investigate what happens in a tumor, to model how a tumor develops, and to test existing and new medicines for patients. Clevers explains the highlights of this review in the video below. The review itself was published last week in Science.
