Stem Cells Australia (ARC Special Research Initiative administered by the University of Melbourne) (2011–2018)

Abstract:
Despite progress in stem cell research, scientists do not understand how stem cells decide what to become. Stem Cells Australia will draw upon strengths within Australia's premier stem cell research universities and institutes. This collaboration between leading bioengineering, nanotechnology, stem cell and advanced molecular analysis experts, will fast-track efforts to deliver a fundamental understanding of the mechanisms of stem cell regulation and differentiation, and the ability to control and influence this process. Stem Cells Australia will deliver new methods for stem cell propagation and manipulation, new translational technologies for therapeutic applications, and will prepare Australia's future stem cell scientific leaders.
