Course content

The Centre for Regenerative Medicine is an internationally recognised centre of excellence in stem cells and their applications in human health and disease.

Our work is currently organised into 5 themes. So as to promote collaboration within the Centre, we adopt a flexible approach to these themes with each PI (Principle investigator) having one or more secondary affiliations.

Two themes focus on fundamental research - "Pluripotency and iPS" and "Lineage and Cell Specification".

The other three aim to translate fundamental research discoveries into clinical programmes relevant to brain, blood and liver diseases and to tissue repair.

The Centre has strong collaborative links to other Centres within the University, such as the Euan MacDonald Centre for MND Research, the MS Centre and the Roslin Institute.

We also invest in technological development in all areas
