The Human Developmental Biology Initiative is a £10 million project to provide insights into how humans develop – from one cell to billions of cells making up our tissues and organs.
In March 2017, Wellcome announced five ambitious goals to support research globally. Today we look at what we have achieved so far and what we are working towards in 2018.
This is the first of a regular blog from Wellcome’s Science division. I hope to highlight some interesting research (not all necessarily funded by Wellcome), some research opportunities, and some policy matters that affect biomedical science.
Wellcome researchers have discovered a set of simple rules which may explain how complex branching patterns in tissues such as the mammary glands develop.
