How the placenta project is unlocking the secrets of our cellsUnderstanding how the placenta survives and functions is of critical importance in ensuring pregnancies are healthy and viable — and thanks to a remarkable global project, the Human Cell Atlas (HCA), researchers are now uncovering the secrets of its behaviour.

This achievement could have crucial consequences. 

When problems affect a placenta, conditions such as preeclampsia or even miscarriages can happen. Understanding the mechanics of its functioning should help doctors tackle these conditions. Nor is this the only success for the Atlas project, which was launched in 2016 by scientists based in Britain and the United States, a collaboration that has since expanded dramatically and now includes several thousand researchers.

In addition to their placenta triumphs, these groups are also revealing cellular secrets of the immune system as well as the brain, lungs and other organs. In the process, scientists have discovered thousands of new types of cells.
