About Us

Stem and progenitor cells are essential for the maintenance of metazoan tissues. Their dysfunction underlies diverse human diseases and their manipulation provides enormous therapeutic possibilities. The Cambridge Stem Cell Institute (CSCI) is a world-leading centre for stem cell research. Its mission is to transform the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease through a deep understanding of the mechanisms regulating stem and progenitor cells, both normal and pathological. In 2018 CSCI investigators, currently based in 6 different locations, will come together in a new purpose-built building on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus adjacent to Addenbrookes Hospital.


Tony Green was appointed as Director from April 2016. He is supported by a Scientific Advisory Board within the Institute and also by an International Scientific Advisory Board.
