Cambridge Reproduction


Laboratory for Primate Embryogenesis

Life originates from a single cell. The fertilised egg gives rise to the embryo, a handful of loosely attached cells. In our lab, we focus on how embryonic cells organise themselves to form the most complex lifeforms, such as human and non-human primates. We follow primate embryonic cells through parts of their journey to provide insights into human development. Our research is vital for innovative treatments of implantation failure, infertility and cancer as well as clinical applications of stem cell biology.
