The Centre for Stem Cell Biology (CSCB) is recognized internationally as a Centre of Excellence for research on pluripotent stem cells. The research and discoveries of the CSCB are central to the long-term goal of developing clinical applications for pluripotent stem cells in regenerative medicine.
The past 15 years have seen a rapid growth in interest in human pluripotent stem cells, first embryonic stem cells and, more recently, induced pluripotent stem cells, not only for regenerative medicine but also for toxicology, disease modelling and drug discovery. Development of these applications depends on our fundamental understanding of how such cells make fate decisions between self-renewal on the one hand, and differentiation into distinct lineages on the other.
In this meeting we will bring together key researchers from India and the UK to discuss the progress in developing applications for pluripotent human stem cells and to address how developmental biology is contributing to that progress.
