  • PRESS RELEASE: Realising high hopes for the new wave of medicine
    16 September 2015
    Regenerative medicine represents a new paradigm in healthcare, but with mini kidneys being grown in labs and titanium body parts being created with 3D printers, how close are we really to accessing 'made to order' body parts or combatting cancers in a significant way in Australia?
  • PRESS RELEASE: Selling stem cells: a need to reconcile hype, hope and evidence
    09 September 2015
    A public forum at the Melbourne Brain Centre will focus on community expectations in stem cell science, with a Monash academic and international expert leading the discussions.
  • PRESS RELEASE: Call for urgent action to curb sale of unproven stem cell treatments in Australia
    03 March 2015
    A growing number of clinics are offering unproven, costly, and potentially hazardous stem cell therapies in Australia. There is an urgent need for more stringent oversight to protect patients against risks, and to bring Australian regulations into alignment with other jurisdictions and the recommendations of leading international learned scientific and research organisations.
  • PRESS RELEASE: Unraveling the biological mystery of how cells regulate their fate
    13 February 2015
    Stem Cells Australia researchers – Professor Christine Wells and Professor Ernst Wolvetang – are part of an international consortium that has been able to shed light on how mammalian cells transition from one type to another during development and in response to stress or infection. In the work, published today in the prestigious journal Science, researchers were able to show the importance of a key regulatory “switch” involved in triggering a cascade of genetic changes that ultimately result in dramatic change in the attributes of the cell.
  • PRESS RELEASE: New platform aids stem cell research
    11 December 2014
    Researchers at The University of Queensland are part of a global team that has developed a new way of reprogramming human cells to make artificial stem cells. The development is expected to help researchers explore ways to arrive at new cell types in the laboratory, with important implications for regenerative medicine and stem cell science.
  • CCRM and Stem Cells Australia Agree to Collaborate in the Global Translation of Stem Cell Research
    17 June 2014
    The Centre for Commercialization of Regenerative Medicine and the Stem Cells Australia consortium have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding to work together to increase the translation of stem cell research in the two countries.
  • Bendigo: Getting the facts on stem cells
    16 June 2014
    Bendigo and District residents will have the opportunity to learn the facts about stem cells and research into vision loss at a FREE community event on Thursday 3 July.
  • Jose Polo awarded new Metcalf Prize for stem cell research
    02 June 2014
    Stem Cells Australia’s Jose Polo receives $50,000 Metcalf Prize in recognition of his contribution to stem cell science. The Metcalf Prize is a new initiative of the National Stem Cell Foundation of Australia and aims to celebrate exceptional Australian mid-career stem cell researchers.
  • Press Release: NHMRC places unproven stem cell treatments on the agenda for Australian doctors and patients
    19 December 2013
    Concerned about Australians pursuing unproven and potentially risky stem cell treatments, the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) has released new resources for Australian medical practitioners and patients. These helpful guides raise important considerations for anyone contemplating stem cell-based treatment yet are uncertain where to get more information and advice.
  • Press Release: Australian researchers part of international team to combat heart disease
    17 June 2013
    An international consortium of cardiac stem cell experts, including Professors Richard Harvey and Nadia Rosenthal, have been awarded a prestigious grant to better understand the role of these cells in heart function and repair.
