Wellcome - MRC Cambridge Stem Cell Institute

World-leading centre for stem cell research

The Wellcome - MRC Cambridge Stem Cell Institute at the University of Cambridge is a research centre for the nature and potential medical uses of stem cells. It is located on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus in Cambridge, England. The Centre is funded by the Wellcome Trust and the Medical Research Council.

Our Institute consists of 28 outstanding research groups, working across three key research themes: Stem Cell States, Stem Cells in Disease and Stem Cells & Therapeutics.  

In 2019, our investigators will come together in a purpose-built new building on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus. The new Institute will bring together scientists from multiple disciplines, operating across many tissues and at multiple scales.  This unique set up will allow commonalities and differences in stem cell biology to be explored in a cohesive and inter-disciplinary manner.
