A global forum for stem cell research.

+ More About This Channel

Stem cells are primitive cells commonly found in all multicellular organisms in their most native states. With the ability to self-renew and differentiate into any other cell type, stem cells carry infinite research potential. Not only can stem cells provide us with a deeper understanding of the core mechanics of cell biology, they can also be applied in biomedical studies exploring tissue repair and regeneration. However, although they could be the key to discovering a definitive “cure-all” solution, much is still to be learned in areas such as harvesting, reprogramming and synthesising stem cells; and doing so using controlled and ethical techniques.

This Channel curates the most up to date and impactful research and resources of interest to the stem cells community.
