Timothy Blenkinsop, MD, presents his research ‘3D Eye Organoids with Distinct Cornea’, at the ARVO conference, outlining how these organoids have developed sophisticated cornea structures. He said, “We have conducted single-cell RNA-Seq analysis and identified a number of different subtypes of cells, which resemble — at least in terms of the gene expression — the cell types of the cornea, and now we're using these for modeling wound healing diseases and testing compounds to see whether we can mitigate those symptoms from wound healing.
