Scientists and educators worldwide use the Carnegie Collection of Embryology to define normal human embryo development for decades. The Embryo App for iPhone/iPad and iPod Touch, developed by National Library of Medicine (NLM), utilizes mobile telecommunication and multimedia technologies to add interactive capabilities to the embryo data, enhancing our understanding of embryo development. Embryo is a collaborative project between NLM, the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health & Human Development (NICHD), Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center (LSUHSC) and National Museum of Health & Medicine's Human Developmental Anatomy Center (NMHM & HDAC). This App is part of the National Library of Medicine's program to fulfill the NLM's role as a provider of medical, science and health care information with mobile technologies. The Embryo App provides a new venue for us to access and interact with the Carnegie Collection of Embryology for the first time.
