The Stem Cell Report with Martin Pera
The Renaissance of Developmental Biology
Show Notes

In this episode, we will talk about morphogenesis in embryo development, a process that in mammalians is known to show considerable plasticity. Understanding how this process is coordinated and how it responds to stress and physiological regulatory mechanisms provides us with a more complete picture of the regulation of mammalian development. We will talk with the authors of new research published in Stem Cell Reports on the regulation of embryo size and the timing of morphogenesis, critical early steps in embryonic development.
