A Coordinated Progression of Progenitor Cell States Initiates Urinary Tract Development

Oraly Sanchez-Ferras from the Goodman Cancer Research Centre recently published a paper in Nature Communications. She reveals how the formation of tissues proceeds through a progression of different progenitors. This understanding is important for the generation of organ replacement in regenerative medicine but also in identifying regulators of progenitor progression leading to tissue morphogenesis and potentially cancer progression.
This work was made possible with the contribution of Alain Pacis and Mathieu Bourgey from C3G, who performed the single-cell analyses.
