Mouse Egg Matured Out of the Body, Jennifer Rowley

Image: 

This is a mouse egg that has been matured outside of the ovary. With the right engineered environment, these eggs can develop, grow and behave much like they would in the body. Being able to study eggs in this way allows researchers to develop new approaches and treatments for women facing infertility.
