Studying at Cambridge



Only a few minutes to spare? Try one of these fact-filled short films.

What is a stem cell? What is the difference between an embryonic and and iPS stem cell? For a rapid-fire, all-round introduction to stem cells, you can't beat this mini series by Ben Paylor and the Canadian Stem Cell Foundation.



The three films below are a good starting point if you are interested to find out how research at the Cambridge Stem Cell Institute has an impact on medicine. They were made for non-specialists by patients and CSCI researchers.






Want to see what some of our scientists get up to when they're not in the lab. Check out how some of them got on at our first Science Showoff comedy gig.


Our Institute is an international centre of excellence for research into stem cell biology and stem cell medicine
