Updated August 4, 2020

Articles report on UB research in which scientists have generated millions of mature human cells in mouse embryos and quote study co-author Jian Feng, PhD, professor of physiology and biophysics. “Further development of our technology could enable the generation of even larger quantities of specific types of mature human cells to allow us to create more effective mouse models to study diseases that gravely affect humans, such as malaria or COVID-19,” Feng said.
