In brief – Embryo models

Stem cell-based models of human embryos provide an opportunity to gain knowledge of early human development that could have major implications for human health and well-being, while avoiding the ethical difficulties presented by research on human embryos. At the same time, embryo models spark boundary issues and challenge current regulations.

In the publication In brief – Embryo models the Swedish National Council on Medical Ethics describes ethical and societal aspects on the production of and research on human embryo models.
