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.
Our colleagues at the MRC Medical Research Festival
The MRC held a medical research festival in Sheffield's own Winter Gardens at the weekend and some of our colleagues in CSCB were involved! The video is taken from the MRC's youtube channelOur research>
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.Full Story>
Protein could improve treatments for recurrent miscarriages and pre-eclampsia
Scientists within the University of Sheffield have identified a protein involved in the development of the human placenta, which may also help embryos implant in the womb.Full Story>
Study & Training
We provide specialist training in the fields of stem cell biology and regenerative medicine. Every year, we recruit students to work on a range of projects as well as running a number of training workshops and events.Visiting Scientist Programme> Workshop & Events> PhD & Postgraduate Opportunities> Masters (MSc) Information>
Sponsors & Partnerships
The Centre for Stem Cell Biology is generously sponsored by a number of organisations, we also have a number of collaborations & partnerships too.Our Sponsors & Partners>
We have a number of specialised facilities within CSCB and Biomedical Sciences that enhance our research. A number of these facilities are available to external partners.
