Gastrointestinal and Liver Development and Organogenesis

Our knowledge of the basic mechanisms contributing to the development of the gastrointestinal tract and liver has rapidly expanded as a result of recent advances in stem cell biology and the advent of 3-dimensional culture systems. Organoids can be used to model both normal developmental processes and human disease ex vivo, with broad implications to the study of organogenesis and tissue injury/repair. Furthermore, studies utilizing stem cells and tissue engineering can inform regenerative approaches and cell and tissue replacement therapies, and represent an emerging field of great interest to readers of the American Journal of Physiology-Gastrointestinal and Liver Physiology. Deadline: 12/1/17.
