MDR researchers Clemens van Blitterswijk and Stefan Giselbrecht have contributed to a remarkable discovery. This work, led by Erik Vrij, investigates how identical twins originate from a single embryo, delving into the early stages of human development. By creating synthetic embryo structures outside the womb, the team has provided deeper insights into previously obscured biological processes.

Huge kudos to the entire team for their exceptional work!
