A centre of excellence for pioneering stem cell research

Undertaking fundamental and applied research on the biology of pluripotent stem cells with the aim to develop cell therapies for regenerative medicine.

First Sheffield Stem Cell Club

Come and join us for the first Sheffield Stem Cell club to take place on Wednesday 26th October, 4-6 pm. Venue: Alfred Denny Conference Room.


Hydrogels putting Stem Cells to sleep

Sheffield researchers revealed that mimicking a natural process called diapause can halt stem cells, effectively putting them to sleep for up to two weeks.
