Medicine’s Paul Tesar discussed stem cells and reproductive biology

Synthetic mouse embryos created from stem cells—without sperm, eggs, or a uterus

STAT: Paul Tesar, the Dr. Donald and Ruth Weber Goodman Professor of Innovative Therapeutics in the Department of Genetics and Genome Sciences at the School of Medicine, discussed advances in reproductive biology. “As soon as the science starts to move into a place where it’s feasible to go from a stem cell population in a Petri dish all the way through to organ development—which suggests one day it will be possible to go all the way to creating a living organis —it’s a pretty wild and remarkable time,” he said.
