Breakthrough Moments: Genome Editing and Organoids.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Six years ago, Schwank et al. (2013) adapted CRISPR-Cas9 and organoid technology to repair genetic diseases in patient-derived tissues. We shine a spotlight on how this work has inspired the development of tools to study and correct genetic diseases in experimental systems, with the ultimate goal of treating human disease.
