Powerful Robots: The Big Question of Morality

Stem cell scientist sees obligation to face ethical issues

22 Nov 2021  |  www.medinlive.at
The article discusses the advancements and implications of organoid research, particularly in the field of medicine. Organoids, artificially cultivated microstructures, are being used to simulate human organs for research purposes. The Institute for Molecular Biotechnology of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (IMBA), led by Jürgen Knoblich, is at the forefront of this research in Austria. Organoids are created from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells) and can mimic the development of human organs. While they differ from actual human brains, they serve as valuable models for studying neurological diseases like autism and schizophrenia. The article also touches on the ethical considerations of organoid research, the potential for organoid-based therapies, and the role of organoids in drug development. It highlights the contributions of scientists like Shinya Yamanaka and Hans Clevers and mentions the global spread of organoid research, with hundreds of groups working on it worldwide.

"It's only the others who are sick"
