Long-term expanding human airway organoids for disease modeling

For the first time Clevers’ group successfully established long-term-expanding human airway organoids, containing all major cellular elements, from healthy individuals, as well as from patients. Several approaches have been explored to generate mammalian airway organoids. None of these approaches allows long-term expansion of airway epithelium from adult human individuals in vitro. Human airway organoids represent … Continue reading Long-term expanding human airway organoids for disease modeling
