The Superheroes in Liver Regeneration

Posted by on June 23rd, 2020

The animation is a result of collaborative work of scientists from the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Stem Cell Biology (DanStem) and visual storytellers from the Animation Workshop (VIA), telling the story of a scientific attempt to learn what happen to the liver when damaged and how this knowledge could be translated in the future[…]

JoVE for developmental biology research and eduction

Posted by on April 24th, 2020

Dear Developmental Biologists, We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Node for the chance to write a post about JoVE and how our resources can be beneficial for the research and teaching of developmental biology and multiple other disciplines. All researchers will be familiar with the challenges of replicating an experiment you’ve[…]

Cells of Knowledge: Collaborative effort of scientists and animators

Posted by on March 5th, 2020

An interdiciplenary collaboration of scientists from the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Stem Cell Biology and animators in Denmark is aiming to facilitate a dialogue between the two diciplines, and ultimately disseminate stem cell research to different segments of the society. The primary objectives are: To train scientists to pitch scientific stories to non-scientists, and[…]

Posted by on October 4th, 2018

The winners of Nikon’s Small World in Motion 2018 Competition have just been announced, and overall first place has gone to a stunning developmental biology SPIM movie. Watch Elizabeth Haynes and Jiaye “Henry” He’s “Zebrafish embryo growing its elaborate sensory nervous system (visualized over 16 hours of development)“, and marvel!     Developmental biology also made[…]

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[…]
