Liver Organoids

The liver is a vital organ involved in a wide range of processes such as detoxification, protein synthesis, metabolism, and hormone production. Despite an astounding regenerative capacity in vivo, expansion of liver cells in vitro has remained a challenge. Growth of the hepatic epithelium as organoids provides researchers with a stable population of liver cells for research in a variety of fields including liver biology, disease modeling and toxicity screening.

Explore the resources below for information on the expansion and maintenance of hepatic epithelial cells as organoids.
