The ability to generate mini-organs with higher-order function has tremendous potential for disease modeling, drug discovery, and regenerative medicine applications. To build these higher-order structures, researchers are pursuing many strategies, particularly those involving organoids, which harness developmental principles and self-guided assembly, as well as chimeric organ engineering. These efforts have resulted in the development of more physiologically relevant models, including pathological models of disease and cancer, further advancing therapeutic development and personalized medicine. Despite this promising progress, both of these strategies have inherent limitations, which burgeoning bioengineering advances, such as genome engineering, microfluidics, and biomaterials, among many others, are now just beginning to address.

The goal of this Cell Symposium is to bring scientists studying organoids and organ engineering together with bioengineers to discuss the exciting opportunities and challenges for engineering complexity in higher-order organ-like systems and to foster collaborations and synergize efforts toward generating cellular platforms that can address a myriad of unmet needs.

Symposium topics:

  • Organ engineering
  • Engineering complexity
  • Promises of precision medicine
  • Technology frontiers
  • Disease modeling and therapeutic discovery
