About Organoids

What is an Organoid?

A PDO is a three-dimensional structure grown from cancer cells in a gel-like compound using media containing components which support renewal. PDOs are amenable to faster expansion times in culture under the appropriate conditions and result in higher throughput compared to PDX models. PDO models are currently available for cancer types including colon, pancreas and lung. Protocols are being developed for more tumor types.
