Advanced cell & tissue culture technology
The Centre funds research to investigate how human tissue can be more efficiently grown for downstream purposes, including modelling human systems to better understand disease or replace damaged tissue.
This programme facilitates the advance of cell culture methods for both experimental and therapeutic applications.
Priorities will include the generation of healthy and diseased human tissue from pluripotent stem cells, testing new therapies (e.g. combined immunotherapies and small molecules) on 3D human tissue models, and new clinical grade tissue culture techniques to produce cells and tissue for therapeutic use with minimal handling.
