stem-cellsThe specialized cells that go on to form the spinal cord, muscle and bone tissue in a growing embryo have been produced in the laboratory using stem cells for the first time.

The spinal cord, muscle and skeleton cells are all formed from cells called neuro-mesodermal progenitors (NMPs). A process of carefully timed chemical signals in the growing embryo instructs NMPs to turn into the different cells required for these body parts.
