    Clearance of senescent decidual cells by uterine natural killer cells in cycling human endometrium

    Paul J Brighton et al.
    While acute senescence of decidualizing cells drives the inflammatory response underpinning uterine receptivity, subsequent clearance by activated natural killer cells transiently rejuvenates the cycling endometrium, enabling transition into a gestational tissue upon embryo implantation.

    Single cell transcriptional signatures of the human placenta in term and preterm parturition

    Roger Pique-Regi et al.
    Parturition gene regulation across multiple cell-types and placental compartments is deciphered at single cell resolution, highlighting the common role of the NFKB pathway in both term and preterm birth.

  3. Editor’s choice: an interview with Yaiza del Pozo Martín

    When she realised that reading papers and discussing science was just as enjoyable as doing research, Yaiza del Pozo Martín decided to move away from a career as a postdoc to try something different. She now works as an Assistant Editor for BMJ Open.
  4. Harnessing forces: an interview with Lining (Arnold) Ju

    On reading that the 21st century would be known as the century of biology, mechanical engineering graduate Lining (Arnold) Ju decided to pursue a PhD in biomedical engineering. He is currently a postdoc at the Heart Research Institute and a lecturer at the University of Sydney in Australia, where he studies how platelets sense mechanical forces and how problems in this process can lead to various blood diseases.
