According to a recent paper from Brown University, in vitro gametogenesis (IVG) is poised to disrupt traditional in vitro fertilization (IVF) technology. This presents the possibility of a human baby one day not being born from a donated sperm and a donated egg, but from pluripotent or embryo-derived stem cells.

Custom Embryos

Disease Intervention

Both of Equal Importance
