  • Tomorrow's Medicine: Clearing corneas and restoring vision
    15 March 2019
    The eye’s cornea depends on stem cells to help maintain transparency. If disease or trauma depletes stem cell reservoirs, a rapid and painful loss of vision soon follows.
  • Tomorrow's Medicine: Big data points the way to custom stem cells
    15 March 2019
    Genomic biologist Professor Christine Wells and biostatistician Dr Kim-Anh Le Cao are analysing big data to discover what makes stem cells tick. Already the pair have found new ways to classify stem cells, and they’re working to predict the cells’ behaviour and even create custom immune cells.
  • Tomorrow's medicine: Fixing hearts by finding out what makes them tick
    15 March 2019
    You can learn a lot about hearts by trying to build one from scratch. A pair of scientists have grown ‘beating’ human heart muscle tissue from stem cells and are exploring cardiac regeneration.
  • Stem Cells Australia - Tomorrow's medicine starts today
    15 March 2019
    Since its creation in 2011, the Stem Cells Australia initiative has increased our understanding of how to control and use stem cells in research. Our members have placed Australia at the forefront of stem cell medicine, and now we are developing new diagnostic, therapeutic and biological applications that will transform healthcare in the years and decades ahead.
