Scientists at Erasmus MC have succeeded in making mouse embryos without using eggs, sperm cells and a uterus. They used stem cells. The artificial embryos enable animal-free research into the very beginning of life.
Researchers at Erasmus MC have developed a new method to combine data from large genetic studies, Genome-Wide Association Studies, or GWAS, for many traits. With the first result, their C-GWAS method has again found genes associated with facial shape. The researchers from the Department of Genetic Identification in collaboration with other Erasmus MC departments such […]
Erasmus MC participates in scientific studies of ECMO, or extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. This is a form of life support that temporarily takes over the function of the heart and lungs.
Advanced microscope finds cancer cells that matter
Scientist Miao-Ping Chien and her team have designed and built a completely new type of microscope. In doing so, Chien hopes to boost research into rare cancer cells. ‘We can image tens of thousands of individual cells at once.’
