Stem Cells & Therapeutics

Stem Cells & Therapeutics

Building on the research undertaken into stem cell states and stem cells in disease, Institute researchers are using stem cells to model diseases in vitro and to generate new diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to deliver patient benefit.

Several investigators are developing first-in-human clinical trials of cellular therapies using stem cell derivatives, while others work on new diagnostic and prognostic approaches to improve patient outcomes.

The Institute has a range of group leaders working across different topics within the stem cells & therapeutics theme, details listed below. More information on each researcher's specific area can be found on their group pages.
