The ability to grow and purify specific stem cell derivatives will be crucial for future applications of stem cell therapies.

The factors controlling complex gene expression patterns that regulate the differentiation of stem cells are largely unknown.

Advances in basic and pre-clinical research are being developed into disease-specific regenerative strategies.


Three general areas of stem cell research are being investigated: Molecular Mechanisms, Biotechnology and Bioengineering, and Regenerative Medicine. Combining these approaches, researchers are able to investigate targeted diseases in a multidisciplinary fashion.
