Our work to date and where we go from here

 

Bringing together the most advanced expertise in Regenerative Medicine

Discover the work of our research hubs

How do we transform today’s scientific discoveries into the long-term treatments and cures of tomorrow?

The brightest scientific minds from across the UK

The Platform is comprised of three interdisciplinary and complementary research Hubs, which draw together the major players in regenerative medicine from across the country. Each Hub has its own broad but distinctive focus, dedicated research team and connections to commercial and clinical end-users. Collectively, they provide a central source of expertise and knowledge – generating new tools, protocols and resources that can be utilised by other research groups in both academia and industry.

Stem cell liver implants show promise

New research suggests liver tissue grown from stem cells could one day replace the need for liver transplants. A study by Professor David Hay and colleagues found liver tissue implants supported liver function in mice with a type of liver disease.

Developing a renewable source of human liver tissue

The Hay laboratory (UKMRP1 Niche Hub) has developed a renewable source of human liver tissue for translational medicine - in vitro derived tissue for cell based modelling ‘in a dish’ and for developing cell based therapies for human liver disease.

GET (Glycosaminoglycan-enhanced transduction) technology

One of the main stumbling blocks in regenerative medicine is the inefficient delivery of targeted therapies. Dr James Dixon (UKRMP1 Acellular Technologies Hub), has developed a highly efficient system using small proteins that target the cell's sugar coating (heparan sulphate).

Patients regain sight after being first to receive retinal tissue engineered from stem cells

The first patients to receive a new treatment derived from stem cells for people with wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD) have regained reading vision. The stem cell technology was developed with MRC funding.
