This Special Issue titled “Advances in Organoid Technology—Selected Papers from Organoids Are Us 2022” will be published in Organoids (ISSN 2674-1172), and is dedicated to the publication and discussion of talks presented at the “Organoids Are Us” 2022 symposium, organised by Professor Elizabeth Vincan and Dr. Maree Faux.
Participants of the conference are cordially invited to contribute original research papers or reviews fully free of charge to this Special Issue of Organoids. We welcome submissions of previously unpublished original work on all aspects and applications of organoids.
About the “Organoids Are Us” symposium:
Organoids, lab-grown miniature models of organs, are transforming science and medicine. Researchers have developed them from a vast array of organs, including gut, stomach, liver, brain and kidneys, to understand how tissues develop and repair. Organoids established from healthy tissues are proving to be excellent models of authentic infection, as they recapitulate the essential features of organs. Organoids can also be generated from tumour cells to mimic cancers and help predict how an individual will respond to a drug, making personalised medicine a reality. This symposium includes talks by researchers using organoid technology to advance our understanding of stem cells, development and human disease.
The ”Organoids Are Us” symposium is now in its fourth year, and will be held on Tuesday 2 August 2022 at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute (WEHI). It provides a snap shot of the advances in organoid technology. Invited speakers and committee members are invited to contribute articles to this Special Issue on the symposium. These symposia were conceived and named “Organoids Are Us” by Special Issue Guest Editor Professor Elizabeth Vincan because “organoids” are indeed “us”.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Organoids is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
