Intestinal organoid development mimics regeneration

Intestinal organoids are three-dimensional structures derived from a single intestinal stem cell. They are great tools for applications ranging from fundamental biology to personalized and regenerative medicine. However, despite their relevance in research, it is still unclear how a single cell can give rise to a fully formed organoid. In a study published in Nature, the group of Prisca Liberali discovered the molecular events that lead to symmetry breaking – the most crucial step in organoid development. Read more
