Since 2007, ESC & iPSC News has been providing weekly updates on the top publications, reviews, and news in pluripotent stem cell research. Through our website, Twitter, and email newsletters, our editorial team is proud to help keep researchers and medical professionals up-to-date with the latest discoveries, jobs, and event postings in the pluripotent stem cell field.
The 2019 3Rs prize has been jointly awarded to Dr Francesca Nunn and Dr Marta Shahbazi. Marta and colleagues have developed advanced 3D cultures of human and mouse ESCs to mimic the development of the embryo at implantation and the subsequent morphogenesis and formation of the amniotic cavity.
