Circadian Entrainment Triggers Maturation of Human In Vitro Islets
Epigenomic studies reveal mechanisms driving differentiation of human stem cells into pancreatic islets and uncover a role for circadian rhythms in their functional maturation.
Circadian-clock-entrained islets gain metabolic oscillations and stable chromatin changes that trigger cyclic insulin responses with a raised glucose threshold and function within days of transplant.

High-Efficiency, Selection-free Gene Repair in Airway Stem Cells from Cystic Fibrosis Patients Rescues CFTR Function in Differentiated Epithelia
Vaidyanathan et al. use Cas9 and AAV to correct the CF causing ΔF508 mutation in >30% of alleles in airway basal stem cells from CF patients and embed corrected cells on a scaffold for
engraftment. This method restores physiologic CFTR function and provides an ex vivo strategy to treat cystic fibrosis.

Patient-Derived Organoids Predict Chemoradiation Responses of Locally Advanced Rectal Cancer
Yao et al. generated a patient-derived organoid (PDO) biobank from patients with locally advanced rectal cancer (LARC) and reported that organoids had similar molecular profiles to those of the
patient tumor and that PDOs can predict LARC patient chemoradiation responses, reinforcing their value as a companion diagnostic tool in LARC treatment.
