Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Rossi et al. describe an embryonic organoid model that mimics the early development of the heart, from the generation of cardiovascular precursor cells to the specification of the first and second heart fields. These axially patterned organoids support the formation of cardiac crescent and early cardiac tube-like structures while reproducing the cell diversity and tissue-tissue interactions typical of embryos.
