Novel system for 3D culture of pancreatic cancer

Christine Iok In Chio, PhD (Damon Runyon Shirley Stein Fellow ‘13-‘17) of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, and colleagues, developed a 3D “organoid” culture system for pancreatic cancer that enables growth of pancreatic tissue not only from laboratory mouse models, but also from human patient tissue, offering a path to personalized treatment approaches in the future. The study was published in the journal Cell.
