• Bridging the gap between stem cell science and cell therapy
    17 December 2014
    Scientists involved in basic stem cell research rarely get the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with colleagues involved in the development and delivery of cellular therapies. For the first time in the Australian stem cell field, the Australasian Society for Stem Cell Research, the Australian New Zealand region of the International Society for Cellular Therapy and Stem Cells Australia held a joint conference, bringing together scientists from basic and clinical research, engineering and industry.
  • Tribute to Prof Don Metcalf: Pioneer in stem cell research
    16 December 2014
    Long before there were stem cell journals, or stem cell institutes, or stem cell societies, Professor Metcalf was undertaking research on haematopoiesis that would influence generations of scientists in the field and will forever serve as a paradigm for our work.
  • Australian science provides vital link in ‘grand’ stem cell project
    11 December 2014
    Over the last four years a consortium of over 40 researchers from Canada, Netherlands, South Korea and Australia have been working together to learn more about how stem cells can be made directly from a patient – a complex process called ‘reprogramming’. Their findings, recently published in the prestigious journals Nature and Nature Communications, reveal a new way to make stem cells that could greatly aid medical research.
