Snapshot of Stem Cell Research in Australia

Australia has both a current diversity and a proud history of leading stem cell research. The National Stem Cell Foundation of Australia has completed a new initiative to explore the range of research activities happening around the country.  The result is our Snapshot of Stem Cell Research in Australia: May 2014.

This document is a collection of more than 150 entries briefly describing research groups, laboratories, projects and initiatives working around Australia on stem cell science and research as at May 2014.

The snapshot aims to capture in one document the range of research currently conducted in Australia. We hope this will facilitate collaboration and networking among researchers, and help the Foundation’s strategic planning as it works to support stem cell research.

Information contained in the snapshot has come from research institute websites and/or been edited or provided directly by individual researchers.
