Future Directions

The future of stem cell medicine will be anchored in three pillars of research and translational growth: Regenerative Medicine, Disease Modelling and Designer Cells. Each program builds on key research outcomes generated during the initial seven years of Stem Cells Australia funding, and is underpinned by the Ethics, Engagement and Policy unit. 
New support from the Australian Research Council will allow Stem Cells Australia to expand and target its scientific portfolio towards medical and technological advances. This support will also facilitate the broadening of the Stem Cell Australia membership network to become nationally representative. 

In parallel, the network will also continue to track and discuss the social  and regulatory implications of this research.
