Stem cells are our bodies’ building blocks. They are different from other cells because they have the potential to differentiate into any cell type and can renew themselves, which means they can heal blood, tissue and organs.
Clinical translation event kicks off strategic partnership between Medicine by Design and the Stem Cell Network
CellLines is the hub for news from across SCN's national network. Each month we share articles of interest, updates on our research portfolio, workshop and bursary opportunities, and the latest scientific publications.
