"Patient-derived organoids, from diseases such cancer or cystic fibrosis, are suitable for performing large scale screens, becoming an excellent in vitro platform for drug discovery and development. Moreover, in vitro response of organoids correlates with the clinical outcome of the patients from which the organoid were derived."

LSFM4LIFE session: Human Pancreas Organoids and Diabetes

In this session, the LSFM4LIFE work-package leaders and team members illustrate the achievements of the project and the outlook for clinical trials

 

The EU Horizon2020 project LSFM4LIFE (grant agreement # 668350), running 2016-2019, aims at the isolation and therapeutic-scale manufacture of human pancreas organoids for the cellular therapy of type 1 diabetes (T1D).
