Today medical center doctors can bioengineer the gastrointestinal tissues of sick children to find clues about a child's disease and how to treat it. Cincinnati Children's is building on this early research advancement in personalized medicine by launching the Center for Stem Cell and Organoid Medicine (CuSTOM).
