Research Groups

Stem Cells and Regeneration

Cooper-White Group

The Cooper-White group is passionate about bridging the biological and engineering sciences to develop novel solutions to tissue generation and repair. 

Hobbs Group

The primary research aim of the Hobbs group is to identify and define the critical molecular mechanism underlying adult stem cells.

Laslett Group

The Laslett group investigate the biology of human pluripotent stem cell lines, including embryonic stem cells (hESC) and human iPS cells.

Nagy Group

The Nagy Group is focused on combining knowledge of developmental biology, stem cells and genetic engineering to create successful therapeutics for regenerative medicine applications.

Nilsson group

The Nilsson Group is currently involved in a number of research projects that focus on understanding haemopoietic stem cells (HSC). Haemopoietic stem cells are responsible for the production of blood and immune cells.

Polo Group

The Polo group is interested in the transcriptional and epigenetic mechanisms that govern cell identity and cell fate. It has a particular focus on pluripotency and the reprogramming of somatic cells into induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells and other mature cell types.

Zenker Group

The Zenker group seeks to understand how a cell’s structure and function is regulated by the continuous re-organization of the microtubule network - highly dynamic cytoskeletal filaments regulating fundamental processes including cell division, migration and differentiation.
