The UCL Centre for Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine was officially launched in April 2009.

It brings together 160 research groups from several faculties, specialised hospitals and institutes across UCL, including the MRC National Institute for Medical Research (NIMR), with a common interest in all aspects of stem cells, tissue engineering, repair and regeneration and the development of  their therapeutic and biotechnological potential.

The research carried out by the Centre's members is highly multi-disciplinary and incorporates ideas and technologies from Engineering, Nanotechnology, Mathematics and the Physical Sciences, Computer Science, Bioinformatics and Chemistry.
