A scientist demonstrates stem cell equipment

Our Stem Cell Network gives researchers access to technology, equipment and expertise for carrying out dementia and non-dementia research projects involving induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs).

The DPUK-funded network comprises stem cell laboratories based at Cambridge, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Manchester, Oxford, and UCL.
