One of the most dramatic scientific developments in recent years is the use of stem cells to make self-organising 3D models of a variety of different organs and tissues. As brain organoids and stem cell-based embryo models become increasingly sophisticated, is a new regulatory regime now required?

Professor Emily Jackson will consider this issue at the Intellectual Forum in this year's Lisa Jardine Memorial Lecture, an annual lecture that pays tribute to the life and work of Jesus College's first female Fellow.

After the event, we would be pleased to welcome all attendees to a free drinks reception.
