Finalist Dr Paul Biegler Australian Museum Eureka Prize
Congratulations to Dr Paul Biegler, who has been named as a finalist in this year’s Australian Museum Eureka Prizes – the nation’s top science awards - for his longform article exploring a new device to create embryo-like structures. This device is shedding light on the mystery of early human development and the blight of miscarriage and birth defects. But could these embryoids one day supply transplant organs or even make a baby? In Biology's Black Box, Paul asks bioengineers and policymakers how far we can take the 'embryo in a dish'.
