“The placenta is unique amongst organs in that you have two individuals contributing to a single organ.”

Dr Courtney Hanna

In the latest episode of the Genetics Unzipped podcast, we’re going back to the womb to explore the genetics of how to make babies – from finding out how birthweight is linked to the risk of diabetes to investigating the multifaceted role of the hormone prolactin in pregnancy and the role of epigenetics in the placenta.

Genetics Unzipped is the podcast from The Genetics Society. Full transcript, links and references available online at GeneticsUnzipped.com.
