Abstract

Organoids are stem cell-derived structures that are generated in three-dimensional tissue culture. They are unique since they exhibit a high degree of self-organization and differentiation, and thus recapitulate many of the features of the tissues from which they were derived. Because of this, organoids are now firmly established as an essential tool in medical research, and have the potential to drastically reduce the number of animals required for experimentation.
