The Stem Cells Group
The Stem Cells Group has been working on development of organ and medical devices using stem cells. These include adult stem cells as well as embryonic human stem cells. Examples of work are:
In-situ endothelisation of cardiovascular devices with progenitor stem cells.
Development of small intestine using UCL-Nano-Bio and intestine epithelial cells and stem cells.
Development of liver using UCL-Nano-Bio and human embryonic stem cells.
Development of tissue engineered cartilage using blood acquired stem cells and a new degradable nanocomposite scaffold.
