Dr Ingo Ringshausen's lab and collaborators has revealed insights into overcoming drug resistance in B Cell lymphoma by targeting tumor stroma cells

#openupstemcells, 2019 - Using digital channels to respond to public questions about stem cell research

#openupstemcell was a Europe-wide digital engagement action in collaboration with EuroStemCell and the researchers at our institute. It involved responding to some of the most frequently asked questions posed by the public by releasing recorded videos across our own and EuroStemCell social media channels as a celebration of Stem Cell Awareness Day – 9 October 2019.

Throughout the month of September 2019, the event was promoted both online and to the relevant local audiences, to receive and address a range of questions. From the range of questions received our researchers have produces the following short video’s:


Patient stories: how stem cell research may impact future medicine

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 co-created by patients and our researchers.




Laboratory-grown blood cells: transfusion of the future

Dr Cedric Ghevaert's group are exploring new ways to produce red blood cells and platelets from stem cells in the laboratory. These cells have the potential to revolutionise transfusion medicine, so we asked the public and blood donors what questions they had for the scientists behind this pioneering work.


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.


The University of Cambridge film on 'The future of Medicine' featuring CSCI PI Sanjay Sinha talking about cardiac patches from stem cells.


Professor Bertie Gӧttgens explains why blood stem cells make certain decisions in a short film for the blood cancer research charity Bloodwise.


Take a look at Professor Robin Franklin's work on myelin and multiple sclerosis (MS). Robin received the 2018 Barancik Prize from the National Multiple Sclerosis Society for Innovation in MS Research.


Watch an interview with Professor Brian Huntly on the molecular landscape of Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML), recorded at the European Hematology Association congress.


Dr Brian Hendrich took part in an European Project - 4DCellFate - exploring the decision making in embryonic development and the role of PCR and NuRD complexes in this process. The outcome of that collaboration was summarised in a video.
