About Eurostemcell (www.eurostemcell.org

Provide reliable, independent information and road-tested educational resources on stem cells and their impact on society. We’re a partnership of scientists, clinicians, ethicists, social scientists and science communicators, funded by the European Commission. 

Education 

Dr Cathy Southworth, Centre for Regenerative Medicine, The University of Edinburgh, will introduce the session and showcase teaching resources for schools produced by Eurostemcell. Cathy was a primary teacher before starting a career in research and science communication.

Research

The Centre of Stem Cell Biology (CSCB), Sheffield, is co-directed by Prof Peter Andrews and Prof Harry Moore. The Centre’s goal is developing clinical applications for pluripotent stem cells in regenerative medicine. Safety of such cells is of major importance for cell therapy, and we recently identified critical genes responsible for cancer-like properties of stem cells. The CSCB is teaching and collaborating world-wide to standardise stem cell research and explore new technologies to utilise the potential of pluripotent stem cells.
