    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.

    “Our mouse embryo model not only develops a brain, but also a beating heart, all the components that go on to make up the body,” said Cambridge professor Magdalena Zernicka-Goetz, who led the team.

    Currently, according to the Cambridge article, UK law “permits human embryos to be studied in the laboratory only up to the fourteenth day of development, but there are no rules around synthetic embryos.”
