Regenerative Medicine, Stem Cells, Transplantation

This theme brings together a team of internationally-recognised scientists.

Our team's expertise covers:

  • embryonic to adult stem cells
  • basic biology
  • clinically-adopted advanced therapies

Research innovation

This encompasses innovations in solid organ and cellular therapy including:

  • ex vivo organ reconditioning using conventional and advanced therapies
  • tissue engineering
  • endogenous regeneration

Vision and objectives

Our vision is to understand the biological mechanisms which underlie tissue injury and repair in health and disease.

We plan to deliver successful first in man therapies and transformative outcomes. These will follow on from wider clinical adoption.

Our overarching objectives are to:

  • provide understanding of the molecular and cellular mechanisms involved in tissue repair
  • understand the role of immune systems in tissue repair and how to exploit this using therapeutics
  • discover new biomarkers to track tissue repair in clinical regenerative medicine trials
  • provide biological insights into organ development and maintenance of functional mass throughout life

Multi-disciplinary environment

Our research theme provides a collaborative, multi-disciplinary research environment.

This promotes the training of early career scientists and engagement with key stake-holders. The aim is to generate inter-disciplinary grant funding and highest impact outputs.
