Cellular heterogeneity during collective cell behavior. Understanding the collective properties of multicellular systems and their patterns, including how such properties arise from single-cell behavior and their self-organization, is essential in order to elucidate fundamental biological processes, such as cell reprogramming and disease.

In assessing their approach to disease, many physicians take the approach that simple eradication of the affected cells is the answer. Prisca Liberali shows why this view of disease is shortsighted and can be improved with organoids. The intro animation was produced as a collaboration between TEDxBasel and the Hochschule Luzern.
