    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.
