Developing organoids to study development, screen compounds and develop cell therapies with Alexander Ross

Video Journal of Biomedicine | Research Update

Alexander Ross of University of Cambridge, UK provides an overview of his research ‘Developing a human hepatoblast organoid model to study development, screen medical compounds, and develop potential cell based therapies’ that he presented at the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) Annual Meeting (26-29 June 2019, Los Angeles, CA, USA). Alexander also provides his insights into the next steps for this research and discusses the potential for clinical translation.

About the author:

Alexander Ross is a physician scientist currently completing a PhD Fellowship under the supervision of Professors Vallier and Zilbauer at the University of Cambridge, UK. His recent work has led to the generation of a novel hepatic organoid model which can be used to study human development, screen pharmacologic compounds, and create potential cell-based therapies. Alexander will commence a National Institute of Health Research Academic Clinical Fellowship in Cambridge upon the completion of his PhD.
