Cerebral organoids

Cerebral organoids grown from a Sandhoff disease patient's induced pluripotent stem cells compared to organoids from cells corrected with CRISPR/Cas9 technology show a surprising overgrowth phenotype early in development. Treatment with a gene therapy vector in early clinical studies restored Sandhoff disease organoids to a normal phenotype (http://www.jlr.org/content/59/3/550.full).
