AutoStem: A high performance, automated stem cell bioengineering facility (2018)

Abstract:
This proposal aims to establish a world-first automated stem cell bioengineering ("AutoStem") facility that, by process design and equipment choice, will enable, at an unprecedented rate, critical insights into the molecular mechanisms that underly the loss in stem cell function and tissue homeostasis as we age. The AutoStem facility will lead to the discovery of the key drivers of stem cell ageing and the development of novel technological solutions to maintain tissue function with age. The outcomes produced from the AutoStem facility will have significant economic and social benefits in enabling healthy ageing and increased productivity for an ageing Australia.
