About Intestinal Cell News


Launched in March of 2015, Intestinal Cell News is Connexon Creative’s 16th online science newsletter. By curating the most recent intestinal epithelial cell and intestinal organoid research, this publication fills a growing niche. This new offering provides a highly valued resource for keeping researchers and medical professionals interested in intestinal cell biology current with the latest publications and news in their field.


The Publications section of Intestinal Cell News is divided into two sections: Intestinal Cancers and Diseases, and Intestinal Stem Cell and Organoid Research. The first section features the most current intestinal epithelial cell research articles, ordered by impact factor. Specifically, our expert editorial team curates the most relevant research discussing new insights at the cellular level into various intestinal cancers (e.g., stomach, large and small intestines, colon) as well as diseases of the intestines (e.g., Crohn’s disease, celiac disease, diverticulitis, intestinal polyps and irritable bowel syndrome). The second section of Intestinal Cell News presents the most recent high-impact research conducted using the intestinal stem cells and the intestinal organoid 3D culture system. Intestinal organoids serve as a very convenient in vitro model for studying the intestinal epithelium. They contain all known intestinal epithelial cell types, including intestinal stem cells, and form intestinal crypts. They demonstrate strong physiological relevance to the adult intestine while avoiding the limitations of in vivo models. Given the unique proliferation and differentiation characteristics of intestinal epithelial cells, intestinal organoids provide a powerful system for investigating stem cell properties and the stem cell niche in general.


Intestinal Cell News caters to a broad audience. Researchers and biomedical professionals interested specifically in intestinal cancers and diseases, particularly at the intestinal epithelial cell level, find the top portion of the Publication section useful for keeping them up to date on the latest research in these areas. Meanwhile, the second portion of the Publications section serves an audience interested in stem cell biology and regenerative medicine as studied using intestinal stem cells and the intestinal organoid 3D culture system. Additionally, Intestinal Cell News provides users with the latest industry news (e.g., announcements pertaining to patents, funding, grants, awards, clinical trials updates, drug discoveries and more), events and jobs in the field of intestinal cell biology. Finally, follow Intestinal Cell News on Twitter for daily updates on the intestinal cell research world.
