The Stem Cell Science Round Up

Organoids to Model Polycystic Kidney Disease – Scientists developed homogenous organoids to study autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease and identify drug candidates.

Generating Mature Cardiomyocytes – Researchers used cardiac mimetic matrix to generate cardiomyocytes with adult-like characteristics and model pathological hypertrophy.

Tracking T Cells in Cancer Organoids – Scientists live-tracked more than 150,000 engineered T cells in patient-derived solid-tumor organoids and identified behavioral clusters.

Mesenchymal Stem Cells in the Aorta-Gonad-Mesonephros – PDGFRA+ cells contribute to the aorta-gonad-mesonephros endothelium and transplantable hematopoietic stem cells.
