Organoids are complex three-dimensional in vitro organ-like model systems. Organoids can be derived from pluripotent stem cells or primary donor tissue and have been used to address fundamental questions about development, stem cell biology and organ regeneration. Human organoids have invigorated new exploration into the cellular makeup of human organs during development, in the adult and during disease. Efforts to improve complexity in organoid systems, and to make organoid systems more robust, reproducible and controlled have prompted continued refinement of methods used to generate and culture organoids. This volume will highlight recent and emerging advances that describe organoid differentiation protocols for many different organ systems, that implement organoids as tools to understand complexity and maturation, high content drug screening, disease modeling, and understanding development and evolution. Readers can expect to gain knowledge in the most recent differentiation protocols from experts in their respective areas.

Key Features

  • The first comprehensive collection of pluripotent stem cell derived organoid protocols
  • Cutting edge methods
  • Methods to generate organoids from many organ systems


Scientists with expertise in pluripotent stem cell culture that wish to implement advanced organoid methods, and for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows that want to gain experience with organoid models

About the Serial Volume Editors

J. Spence Serial Volume Editor

Jason R. Spence, PhD, is an Associate Professor of Internal Medicine, Cell and Developmental Biology and Biomedical Engineering at the University of Michigan Medical School. He attended Canisius College in Buffalo, NY, as an undergraduate. He attended graduate school at Miami University (Ohio) where his research focused on understanding mechanisms that drive regeneration and tissue repair in unique model organisms that maintain regenerative ability throughout life, including Notophthalmus viridescens (Eastern Newt), Ambystoma mexicanum (Axolotl) and the chick. He performed postdoctoral research Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, where he turned his focus to understanding mechanisms that regulate embryonic development of endoderm-derived tissue (pancreas, liver, intestine) and utilized human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) to understand human differentiation and development. During this time, he pioneered methods to differentiate 3-dimensional intestinal organoids from human pluripotent stem cells. In 2011, Dr. Spence joined the faculty of the University of Michigan Medical School. The focus of the Spence lab include using 3-dimensional organoid human models to study human development and disease, with research focused on understanding intestinal, lung and esophageal development, homeostasis and disease.
