Michael Helmrath, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center - Scientists Grow, Implant Human Intestinal Tissue in Mice
SUNDAY, Oct. 19, 2014 (HealthDay News) - Scientists used stem cells to grow "organoids" of functioning human intestinal tissue in a lab dish. They then transplanted the organoids into mice, creating a new model for studying intestinal disorders, according to the researchers. "This provides a new way to study the many diseases and conditions that can cause intestinal failure, from genetic disorders appearing at birth to conditions that strike later in life, such as cancer and Crohn's disease," l...

Calvin Kuo, Stanford University - Organs in a dish help pinpoint cancer-causing mutations
Krista Conger on May 28th, 2014 - "We have developed a method to grow many different, normal organs outside of the body, in something like a petri dish. We call this an “organoid” system in which we can grow colons, or stomachs, or pancreases as little balls of cells. We can then introduce the DNA for potential cancer genes at will into the organoids and see if these genes induce cancerous characteristics. "
