The in vitro organoid model is a major technological breakthrough that has already been established as an essential tool in many basic biology and clinical applications. This near-physiological 3D model facilitates an accurate study of a range of in vivo biological processes including tissue renewal, stem cell/niche functions and tissue responses to drugs, mutation or damage. In this Review, we discuss the current achievements, challenges and potential applications of this technique.

Three-dimensional organotypic culture: experimental models of mammalian biology and disease
TLDR
Three-dimensional culture techniques are used to visualize the cellular basis of epithelial morphogenesis, to test the roles of specific genes in regulating cell behaviours within epithelial tissues and to elucidate the contribution of microenvironmental factors to normal and disease processes.
The use of murine‐derived fundic organoids in studies of gastric physiology
TLDR
Two unique gastric fundic‐derived organoid cultures are devised: model 1 for the expansion of gastricFundic fundic stem cells, and model 2 for the maintenance of mature cell lineages for studies of epithelial cell biology and cell damage and repair.
Organogenesis in a dish: Modeling development and disease using organoid technologies
TLDR
These studies illustrated two key events in structural organization during organogenesis: cell sorting out and spatially restricted lineage commitment, which are recapitulated in organoids, which self-assemble to form the cellular organization of the organ itself.
Generation of a vascularized and functional human liver from an iPSC-derived organ bud transplant
TLDR
A protocol for the in vitro generation of a 3D liver bud from human iPSC cultures and the monitoring of further hepatic maturation after transplantation at various ectopic sites is described.
In vitro generation of human pluripotent stem cell derived lung organoids
TLDR
It is shown that HLOs are remarkably similar to human fetal lung based on global transcriptional profiles, suggesting that HL Os are an excellent model to study human lung development, maturation and disease.
An in vivo model of human small intestine using pluripotent stem cells
TLDR
This model of the human small intestine may pave the way for studies of intestinal physiology, disease and translational studies and a role for circulating factors in the intestinal adaptive response is suggested.
Generation of cerebral organoids from human pluripotent stem cells
TLDR
A recently established protocol for generating 3D brain tissue, so-called cerebral organoids, which closely mimics the endogenous developmental program and has the potential to model later events such as neuronal maturation and survival.
Small intestinal stem cell identity is maintained with functional Paneth cells in heterotopically grafted epithelium onto the colon.
TLDR
This study shows that cultured murine SI epithelial organoids are able to reconstitute self-renewing epithelia in the colon using a heterotopic transplantation approach, providing evidence that cultured adult SI stem cells could be a source for cell therapy of intestinal diseases, maintaining their identity along the gastrointestinal tract through an epithelium-intrinsic mechanism.
Isolation and in vitro expansion of human colonic stem cells
TLDR
Using culturing conditions that recreate the ISC niche, a substantial proportion of EPHB2-high cells can be expanded in vitro as an undifferentiated and multipotent population.
