A team of Japanese researchers are working on a method to develop babies in the laboratory as early as 2028, according to a study that can help treat infertility and other birth defects. The researchers at Kyushu University aim to mass-produce eggs and sperm in the lab from ordinary human cells. In the study, the team described their method of turning male mice's skin cells into pluripotent stem cells, which can potentially develop into various types of cells or tissues.
