Organoid Models of Cancer Explode With Possibilities

Senthil K Muthuswamy. Cell Stem Cell.

Abstract

Organoids have tremendous promise for modeling human cancers and revealing new biological insights. Sachs et al. (2018), Seino et al. (2018) (in this issue of Cell Stem Cell), and Broutier et al. (2017) derive cancer organoids from breast, pancreas, and liver, respectively, not only reporting new methodologies but also showing their utility for translational and clinical cancer research.
