Scientists grow synthetic embryo with brain and beating heart for first time ever

Researchers from the University of Cambridge have created embryos from mouse stem cells that form a brain, a beating heart, and the foundations of every other organ in the body. This is a “further point in development than has been achieved in any other stem cell-derived model,” the university notes.

The scientists say their results, which come after more than a decade of work, could help researchers understand why some embryos fail while others go on to develop into a healthy pregnancy.
