This artwork captures the concepts of intestinal organoid systems and high throughput screening. The Shalek Lab at MIT uses intestinal organoids and high throughput screening to investigate how the addition of different compounds to a simulated intestinal environment influences the differentiation of intestinal stem cells (ISC's) into Paneth cells. In this artwork, the intestines are drawn as a conveyor belt, with organoid dishes sitting atop. In each dish, a different compound is added (represented by the different colors), and the differentiation of ISC's into Paneth cells is shown by graphical data (seen in the foreground next to some more up-close organoid dishes).
