The new Center for Stem Cell and Organoid Medicine (CuSTOM) at Cincinnati Children’s is a multi-disciplinary team of scientists, clinicians and entrepreneurs using advances in developmental biology and stem cell technologies to revolutionize personalized medicine and improve patient care.

Our world-renowned scientists have developed a way to use stem cells from patients to generate miniature organs, known as organoids. These organoids are a revolutionary platform to understanding disease, developing new personalized treatments and, ultimately, generating tissue for transplantation.

Thanks to a generous matching gift from the Farmer Family Foundation, we’ve established the CuSTOM Accelerator commercialization lab to facilitate clinical translation.

We're Recruiting

CuSTOM seeks motivated collaborative postdoctoral fellows to investigate single cell genomics of human GI organoids in regenerative medicine. Studies will focus on the mesenchymal niche that supports engraftment during transplantation. Learn more about opportunities and how to apply.
