Biography:
My lab at the Hubrecht Institute & MERLN Institute (The Netherlands) created the blastoid system, a blastocyst-like structure formed solely from stem cells. We use this system to dig deeper into the organising principles of the mammalian embryo. We like stem cells and technologies such as single cell sequencing, machine learning image analysis, microsystems.

Blastoid: the backstory of the formation of blastocyst-like structure solely from stem cells.

Posted by on June 27th, 2018

In our recently published paper1, we showed that mouse stem cells self-organize into blastocyst-like structures, that we termed blastoids. Because blastoids can be generated in large numbers, can be finely manipulated, and implant in utero, they are a powerful tool to investigate the principles of pre- and post-implantation development. Here is the backstory of our[…]
