Predicting drug-induced liver injury with micro-patterned co-cultured IPSC-derived human hepatocytes

Researchers from Colorado State University used an enhanced process for creating human hepatocyte-like cells derived from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC-HH) to produce hepatocytes with a more consistent phenotype and longer life span than previous methods have yielded. In a new paper in Toxicological Sciences, the team describes the ability of these new cells to […]

Stem cells form human mini-lung organoids

Organoids are in vitro organ models generated by the self-assembly of cells (likely to be stem cells or induced pluripotent stem cells) into small tissues that replicate some of the 3-dimensional (3-D) cellular and structural complexity of the in vivo tissue/organ. The growing interest in generating organoids as research and testing models was reviewed in […]
