The Centre for Stem Cell Research offers opportunities for both
staff and students to undertake world class research in the area of stem cells.
The University of Adelaide’s Centre for Stem Cell Research is a collaborative initiative comprising 19 research groups located in the University of Adelaide Faculties of Sciences and Health Sciences, the Hanson Institute, the Women’s and Children’s Hospital, SA Pathology (Institute of Medical and Veterinary Sciences), the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and the Royal Adelaide Hospital.
The members of the Centre for Stem Cell Research undertake internationally recognised and awarded research in bone marrow, neural, periodontal, ovarian and cord blood stem cells and their potential applications in stroke repair, cardiac repair, tissue repair (dental, muscle, cartilage), cystic fibrosis, Lysosomal storage and other inherited disorders, transplantation medicine, developmental biology, immune diseases and leukaemia.
The focus of the centre is on translating basic research into clinical and commercial outcomes via collaboration of its members, and with external partners.
