Cell Culture Advances Yield Brain Organoid

In recent years, culturing methods have enabled researchers to generate model tissues that are far more life-like than the single sheets of single cell types that were once the only game in town for cell culture research. Such tissues include duct tissue from intestinal cells, retinae and, most recently, artificial livers. But “so far, the most complex of all human organs, which is the human brain, has not been susceptible to such methods,” noted Juergen Knoblich.
