My lab at the IMBA (Vienna Biocenter) developed the blastoid system, a blastocyst-like structure formed solely from stem cells. We use this system to dig deeper into the design principles of the mammalian embryo. We also develop and use technologies such as single cell sequencing, machine learning/high-content imaging, microsystems.

HFSP postdoctoral position in quantitative high-content imaging of [synthetic] embryos

Posted by on May 7th, 2019

Our laboratory of synthetic development at IMBA (Vienna) is looking for a postdoctoral colleague to decode the self-organising behaviours of early embryos. This position is part of a HFSP with Shantanu Singh (Broad Institute) and Kyogo Kawaguchi (Riken Institute), and requires regular and frequent exchanges with these labs.   Requirements. We are looking for a[…]

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[…]
