Cambridge University lab grown “mini guts” study

“Cambridge scientists have grown ‘mini-guts’ in the lab to help understand Crohn’s disease, showing that ‘switches’ that modify DNA in gut cells play an important role in the disease and how it presents in patients. These could in future be used to identify the best treatment for an individual patient, allowing for more precise and personalised treatments.”
