  • Are Stem-Cell Therapies for Parkinson’s Disease Ready for Clinical Trials?
    19 March 2016
    As stem cell-based therapies are moving rapidly towards clinical trials, treatments for Parkinson’s Disease (PD), an incurable condition, may be on the horizon. A recent announcement of a Phase I/IIa clinical trial involving transplantation of stem cells into the first human subjects has raised hope among patients and sparked discussions in the research community. In a commentary published in the Journal of Parkinson’s Disease, authors propose five key questions that should be addressed as this trial begins.
  • New way to harvest stem cells better for donors
    16 March 2016
    For bone marrow transplantation, stem cells are routinely harvested from healthy donors and used to treat patients with cancers including leukaemia. A new discovery reduces the time required to obtain adequate numbers of stem cells, without the need for a growth factor.
  • Cord blood research may unlock future treatments for cerebral palsy
    08 March 2016
    Australia’s first clinical trial of stem cell infusion from cord blood as a possible treatment for cerebral palsy is commencing in Melbourne.
  • Opinion: You might find my research using monkeys abhorrent, but it could save your life
    01 March 2016
    Associate Professor James Bournes shares his thoughts about why primate research matters.
  • Mining for intestinal stem cells
    01 March 2016
    Researchers are looking at the intestinal stem cells of our gut to understand if we can direct these cells to more efficiently regenerate the gut from a diseased state.
  • Queensland Women in STEM Research Prize 2016 – Vote Now!
    29 February 2016
    In recognition of the leading role women in research, the Queensland Government is holding a competition for female researchers and students in the fields of science, technology, engineering, mathematics. We are delighted that one of Stem Cells Australia’s PhD students – Lizzi Mason – has been nominated for her work in changing the way we think about stem cells, and in particular pluripotent stem cells.
