This undated combination of microscope images provided by Monash University in March 2021 shows different "iBlastoids" (embryo-like structures) stained to highlight different cell types. Scientists made the cell structures in a lab and say they will allow for more research into the earliest stages of human development without running afoul of restrictions on using real embryos.
