Stem cell models of development, regeneration, and disease are quickly advancing. New technologies and concepts are continuously combined with existing knowledge to create more realistic systems to improve our understanding of these intricate processes.
In this collection, we highlight papers published in 2022-2023 across Nature Portfolio journals on topics including embryonic development and stem cells, reproductive biology, synthetic tissues and embryo models, clinical and translational research and tissue stem cells.

Four years ago, the NIH’s Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative Cell Census Network (BICCN) was launched, aiming to identify and catalog the diverse cells types in human, monkey and mouse brain.
In this focus issue on neuroscience methods we present a comment, perspective and a series of reviews that highlight advances in methods and analytical approaches and provide guidelines and best practices in various areas of neuroscience.
Learning new information and skills, storing memories of this knowledge, and retrieving, modifying, or forgetting these memories over time are critical for flexibly responding to a changing environment.
