The Queensland Government is now in caretaker mode until after the state election. Minimal updates will be made to this site until after the election results are declared.
Clem Jones Research Centre for Regenerative Medicine (CJRCRM)
The Centre investigates the therapeutic use of stem cells for tissue repair and treatment of disease. Adult stem cells are present in many tissues and already contribute to tissue replacement and repair. An important goal is therefore to support excellent stem cell science with a view to developing methodology to enhance, induce or transplant stem cells for patient benefit.
