Organoids are three-dimensional cell cultures from embryonic stem cells or induced pluripotent stem cells that model important features of whole organs.
Neural stem cells play a major role in the early development of the brain and they also continue to remain active throughout the lifetime.
Scientists have identified that the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, known to cause COVID-19, infects intestinal cells and undergo proliferation there.
Headed by researchers from Japan-based Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology (TUAT), a group of scientists has effectively established three-dimensional (3D) cultured tissue that imitates liver fibrosis, which is a major trait of non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH).
AZoLifeSciences talks to Ian Wong about a new imaging technique that maps forces cell clusters exert on their surroundings.
During the developmental phase of brains, a number of moving parts occur—and if mutations occur during the early neurodevelopment, it can result in disorders such as autism and macrocephaly.
Researchers have developed a platform for the 3D super-resolution imaging at the nanoscale level that has revealed unexpected findings in mammalian cells.
Bipolar disorder is estimated to affect around 1 to 4% of the population, but understanding the underlying genetics has proved a major challenge.
