Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Synthetic hydrogels deliver cells to repair intestinal injuries

(Georgia Institute of Technology) By combining engineered polymeric materials known as hydrogels with complex intestinal tissue known as organoids -- made from human pluripotent stem cells -- researchers have taken an important step toward creating a new technology for controlling the growth of these organoids and using them for treating wounds in the gut that can be caused by disorders such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
