In this episode, we examine the use of 3D organoid cell culture systems as applied to cancer research and the development of novel anti-oncologic drugs. Collectively, this transition from 3D spheroid culture to organoid culture allows researchers to generate multiple organ-specific cell types, resulting in cell architectures that more closely resemble the human tissue microenvironment.

Furthermore, researchers are generating organoid cultures that are increasingly complex and more phenotypically relevant and, as a result, optimal models are being established to better understand patient-specific tumour proliferation and invasion patterns.
