3D Culture Supports Long-Term Expansion of Mouse and Human Nephrogenic Progenitors

Bhaskar Chanda Stem Cell Li et al. report the derivation and long-term culture of mouse and human nephron progenitor cell lines under chemically defined conditions in 3D format. Expanded NPCs have nephrogenic potential in vitro and in vivo and allow the study of kidney organogenesis, gene editing, drug screening, and disease modeling.
