Human Cell Research

Using stem cells, researchers were able to create a brand-new variety of human cells in the lab. The new cells mimic early human embryonic equivalents found in nature very closely.

As a result, scientists are better able to understand what occurs right after an embryo implants in the womb. A human embryo should implant in the womb seven days after fertilization if all goes according to plan. Due to legal and moral restrictions, the embryo is thus inaccessible for research. To investigate human development in a dish, scientists have previously created stem cell models for a variety of embryonic and extraembryonic cell types.

Pasque explains, “You don’t create a new human cell type every day.” Because we can now examine processes that are often inaccessible during development, we are really happy about this. In reality, we have already been able to determine the origin of extraembryonic mesoderm cells thanks to the model. Longer term, our model should also help to better understand medical issues like infertility, miscarriages, and developmental diseases.
