Engineering Ethics and Self-Organizing Models of Human Development: Opportunities and Challenges
Incorporating engineering ethics early during the planning stages of organoid and gastruloid research may help prevent future confusion about the moral status of complex models of human development.
However, the intrinsic self-organizing behavior of organoids and gastruloids may pose a slight challenge to this novel ethical approach.

Generation of Mouse and Human Organoid-Forming Intestinal Progenitor Cells by Direct Lineage Reprogramming
Miura and Suzuki describe direct conversion of mouse fibroblasts to cells resembling fetal intestine-derived progenitor cells that can give rise to intestinal stem cell organoids and reconstitute
injured colonic tissues after transplantation. They also show that a similar approach can work to make human induced intestinal progenitor cells.

Nup153 Interacts with Sox2 to Enable Bimodal Gene Regulation and Maintenance of Neural Progenitor Cells
Toda et al. demonstrate that the nucleoporin Nup153 interacts and cooperates with Sox2 to regulate the cellular state of neural progenitor cells. Nup153 binds both the 5′ and 3′ ends of genes,
and the direction of gene regulation by Nup153 varies with the binding position of Nup153.
