From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Wellcome Trust Centre for Stem Cell Research at the University of Cambridge is a research centre on the nature and potential medical uses of stem cells.

The Centre is funded by the Wellcome Trust as well as the Medical Research Council. The director is Austin Smith, and the Deputy Director is Fiona Watt.[1]

The main areas of study include pluripotent and neural stem cells, [2] as well as epidermal stem cells.[3] Key advances in stem cell science at the centre include the elucidation of the role of the nanog protein in pluripotency[4] and work on inhibiting cellular differentiation.[5] It also conducts human embryo work as approved by the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority.[6]
