Organoids Revolutionize Research on Respiratory Infections
In a breakthrough for bioengineering, researchers at EPFL have developed organoids that can model the human respiratory tract. The organoids, called AirGels, allow them to uncover the mechanism by which antibiotic-resistant pathogens like Pseudomonas aeruginosa infect the respiratory tract.
