A couple of weeks ago we heard news that Magdalena Żernicka-Goetz’s lab had produced work on a stem cell- derived human embryo-like model, first reported in the Guardian. Since then, we have also had sight of a preprint version of this work. The peer-reviewed paper was published in Nature at 4pm UK time, and two of the authors were on this call to present their work and answer any questions.
