Our Work

NESCI is a flagship regional endeavour. It brings together scientists and clinicians in Durham and Newcastle Universities and in NHS Hospital Trusts.

It is unusual in combining research on embryonic stem cells with research into somatic (or adult) stem cells. Our increasing understanding of stem cell biology is opening up new possibilities for clinical treatment: our close relationship with the NHS and in particular with the Newcastle Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust will facilitate the introduction of stem cells into clinical practice.

It is intended that the Institute’s commitment to practical outcomes will contribute to the region’s economic growth. Under the banner of Newcastle and Durham regional partnership, the Institute will continue to grow as a premier international institute of stem cell science.
