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 improve 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.  

Since 2019, our investigators have been together under one roof in the purpose-built Jeffrey Cheah Biomedical Centre building on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus. The Institute brings together scientists from multiple disciplines, operating across many tissues and at multiple scales. This unique set up allows commonalities and differences in stem cell biology to be explored in a cohesive and inter-disciplinary manner.


We are:

  • Pioneering: We use new technologies for innovative research to generate deep insights into stem cell biology and address the biggest challenges facing human health

  • Collaborative: We bring together biological, clinical and physical stem cell scientists in a fully integrated, vibrant and cohesive institute
  • Visionary: We are training the next generation of stem cell scientists to continue and extend our mission into the future
