Specialized cellular structures may hold clues to health effects of psychological stressManipulating 3D Printed Organoid Microenvironments

Organoids are 3D clusters of stem cells that come together and emulate the microenvironment within individual organs, whether that be liver, kidney, heart, gut or other specific organs. Recent advances in printing such organoids reproducibly and reliably into multiple arrays has attracted significant attention recently as they open up new opportunities to develop a deeper understanding of fundamental cell biology as well as increase the efficacy of therapeutics, reduce their development cost and lead to a paradigm shift in disease treatment.

 New combination technique separates cell types, may prove effective against pathogens
 
New combination technique separates cell types, may prove effective against pathogensTo develop effective therapeutics against pathogens, scientists need to first uncover how they attack host cells. An efficient way to conduct these investigations on an extensive scale is through high-speed screening tests called assays.
