Revenge of the Organoids – Super Scientist saves the day

Can Super Scientist give you your organoid mojo back? Are your growth factors the reason your experiments fail? Can you use engineered or niche-specific growth factors to improve your organoid culture? Super Scientist flies in with easy fixes and questions to ask yourself - do you need to ditch the conditioned media, play around with growth factor combinations, switch noggin and gremlin, or be bold and explore new engineered proteins.
