The organoid field has come a long way in a relatively short amount of time. Although the field started over a decade ago, the pace of discovery has recently gained momentum. From neurobiology to cancer, organoids are uncovering biology that was previously unattainable using cell culture or mouse models and advancing the drug discovery process. And, while many agree that there are still challenges ahead (and a tendency to indulge in hype) the organoid field is on the verge of entering its heyday.

On this episode of GEN Live, we’ll have a broad discussion about organoids – where the field is now, recent advances, and the role organoids will play in future discoveries of basic biology and drug discovery.
