In this episode of the Organoids Podcast, Dr. Tamara Zietek of the University of Munich discusses the use of intestinal organoids as a model system for studying nutrient transport and signalling. Dr. Zietek's group utilizes intestinal organoids to examine nutrient sensing and transport with the aim of applying this knowledge to the study of malabsorption disease and drug availability assays.
In this episode of STEMCELL's Organoids Podcast we ask Dr. Zietek:
- How did you get started with organoids?
- How have organoids impacted the study of nutrient sensing and uptake?
- Which applications have you validated this system for?
- What are some other potential foci for this system moving forward?
