Kirsty wins Best presentation of the 2020 BBSRC Cambridge Symposium

"My talk covered how stem cells can be used to model the development of the postimplantation embryo in vitro. First, I covered how I derived the first yolk sac cell from human pluripotent stem cells. Then, I described how this cell can be used to model the interaction between the human epiblast and yolk sac"
