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.

 

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.

 

The potential impact of our stem cell research on 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 made for non-specialists by patients and CSCI researchers.
