Organoid Center Strategies for Accelerating Clinical Translation

Cell Stem Cell. 2018 Jun 1;22(6):806-809. doi: 10.1016/j.stem.2018.05.008.


The meteoric rise in stem-cell-derived organoid technologies has ushered in a new era of "organoid medicine." Here we discuss how an organoid center can accelerate the translation of laboratory proof-of-principle experiments into clinical practice by developing and utilizing shared platforms for commercial and medical applications.
