Registration is now open for this year's Organoids Are Us symposium. Now in its fourth year, the symposium will be held on Tuesday, 2 August 2022. 

Researchers have developed organoids from a vast array of organs, including the gut, stomach, liver, brain and kidneys to understand how tissues develop and repair.

Organoids established from healthy tissues are proving to be excellent models of authentic infection as they recapitulate the essential features of organs. They can also be generated from tumour cells to mimic cancers and help predict how an individual will respond to a drug – making personalised medicine a reality.

This symposium includes talks by researchers using organoid technology to advance our understanding of stem cells, development and human disease.

This hybrid event can be attended in-person at WEHI or viewed online.
