An efficient way to find out if a chemical could harm an unborn child is by running the mouse embryonic stem cell test (EST). The Scientist interviewed EST experts about the best ways to use the test and about EST variations. One expert, EPA researcher Sidney Hunter, tells The Scientist how EPA is developing easier ways to culture the cells, making the test even faster and cheaper to run. Read about it in the article Stemming the Toxic Tide.
