How does life begin? What drives a newly fertilized egg to keep dividing and growing until it becomes 40 trillion cells, a greater number than stars in the galaxy?
Discover how early life repairs and organises itself, what this means for the future of pregnancy, and how we might solve IVF disorders and prevent miscarriages.
