July 23, 2021

It sounds like science fiction, but thanks to a Hebrew University research team, it could be reality. In this HUJI Talk, Dr. Oren Ram, of the Faculty of Science, Dr. Yossi Buganim, of the Faculty of Medicine and Prof. Tommy Kaplan, of the Rachel & Selim Benin School of Computer Science and Engineering speak about their groundbreaking study on the possibility of creating entire human embryos out of human skin cells, without the need for sperm or eggs. The discovery will enable researchers to better understand and address embryonic malfunctions and diseases such as placental insufficiencies or miscarriages, and identify early markers for risk.
