Studying at Cambridge


The Institute

The Cambridge Stem Cell Institute is a world-leading centre for stem cell research with a mission to transform human health through a deep understanding of stem cell biology.  Our scientists study stem cell behaviour, both normal and pathological, and use their findings to enhance the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases. 

Our Institute consists of 29 outstanding research groups, working across three key research themes: Stem Cell States, Stem Cells in Disease and Stem Cells & Therapeutics.   In 2018, our investigators will come together in a purpose-built new building on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus. 

The new Institute will bring together biological, clinical and physical scientists, operating across many tissues and at multiple scales.  This unique set up will allow commonalities and differences in stem cell biology to be explored in a cohesive and inter-disciplinary manner.
