Japan Science and Technology Agency visit / iPSC Road Map

The UCL Centre for Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine hosted a visit from a delegation from the Japan Science and Technology Agency, a major funding organisation related to the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT), on 25 January 2010.

New iPSC collaboration funded by the NIHR programme in Molecular and Tissue Engineering

Prof Amit Nathwani Prof Peter Coffey A new collaboration developed as a result of the iPSC Working Group led to a new project, which was funded by the NIHR programme in Molecular and Tissue Engineering.  The project, focused on the development of induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells for the treatment of age related macular degeneration, is led by Dr. Amit Nathwani (UCL Cancer Institute) and Prof. Pete Coffey (UCL Institute of Ophthalmology).
