Regenerative Medicine

Overview

This theme brings translational researchers studying:

  • organ transplantation
  • cellular therapy
  • tissue engineering 

Our scientists pioneer cell regeneration for reversal of chronic degenerative conditions.

Clinical scope is wide, enabling effective collaboration on regenerative medicine-focused research. This encompasses diabetes, liver disease and degenerative musculoskeletal/pulmonary disorders. 

The theme enables integrated collaboration between researchers working on epithelial and mesenchymal tissue regeneration.

Haematological research underpins clinical bone marrow transplantation and haematopoietic stem cell therapy.

The theme ensures effective resource for overcoming common challenges facing the regenerative medicine community

It facilitates early engagement and collaborative working with regulators in addition to

development of: 

  • appropriate QC assays
  • meaningful clinical biomarkers
  • optimal trial design 

in this rapid-evolving field.

Our investigators also enjoy close collaborations with other Institute of Cellular Medicine themes.

Cell regeneration research is helping to combat degenerative conditions.
