Modelling development in a dish: self-organisation in 3D gastruloids

Speaker: Dr Naomi Moris

Naomi joined the Francis Crick institute as a group leader in April 2021, where her group uses stem cells to study the fundamental principles of early human embryo development. This work builds off her earlier research, when she was awarded a prestigious Junior Research Fellowship from Newnham College Cambridge, during which she developed a new 3D human ‘gastruloid’ system using human embryonic stem cells. These structures mirror elements of human development in the lab, and can be used to understand normal human development as well as to investigate the causes and consequences when things go wrong, in congenital abnormalities for example. Prior to this, she was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Cambridge following her PhD and MRes in Genetics, and did a BSc in Biological Sciences at Imperial College London.
