Nature Research Round Table: Organoids as Models for Human Disease

Dr. Hans Clevers describes how his lab discovered Lgr5 stem cells in the intestine that lead to the culture of mini-guts, or organoids, and how the culture system has evolved. A pioneer in the development of organoid technologies, Dr. Clevers is a group leader at the Hubrecht Institute.

This presentation was part of a Round Table series titled “Advances in Organoid Applications”, organized in partnership with Nature Research and held at the Springer Nature headquarters in London, UK in June 2019. There, global organoid experts gathered to discuss the current state of the technology. Core discussions centered around protocol standardization, translation into patient care, nomenclature, and understanding what questions a given organoid culture can and can’t answer.
