Tensed beginnings: how membrane tension gates early differentiation

Posted by , on 9 June 2021

Mouse Embryonic Stem Cells (ES cells) have the capacity to generate any tissue in the organism; this remarkable ability is called naïve pluripotency. Intriguingly, when ES cells start to differentiate ...

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

Posted by , on 27 June 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 ...

The people behind the papers: Rute Tomaz & Véronique Azuara

Posted by , on 15 February 2017

Embryonic stem cells express genes necessary for self-renewal, and also ‘prime’ lineage-specific genes which stay silent until differentiation; the molecular players and pathways that govern the timely gene expression are still being ...

The small beginnings of gastruloids

Posted by , on 1 April 2015

Mouse embryonic stem cells (mESCs) are by definition cells that can self-renew (make identical copies of themselves) and specialize into any cell type of the body. Since their discovery, scientists ...

Stem cells...now showing in 3D

Posted by , on 22 January 2015

    Growing organs in vitro is one of the ultimate dreams of any stem cell biologist. As such, it seems obvious that some of these organs will need to ...
