In this episode Drs. Janet Rossant and Patrick Tam, join the podcast. They are experts in early embryonic development and authors of new Perspective article in Stem Cell Reports, Opportunities and Challenges with Stem Cell-Based Embryo Models. Embryo modeling is a rapidly emerging area of science which can help advance the understanding of early development, especially human development where insight has been limited due to technical and ethical issues. The article is online now and will appear in the May 2021 special issue of the journal.
