Stem cells hold great promise for regenerative medicine and therapeutics. HKUMed recently opened a new pathway in the stem cell field through the development of expanded potential stem cell (EPSC) technologies. These new stem cells generate not only all types of cells in an individual but also the “extra-embryonic” cells (for the placenta and yolk sac) that support foetus development in pregnancy. The EPSC technologies offer rich potential for research and HKUMed will capitalise on this seminal discovery through the establishment of Centre for Translational Stem Cell Biology (CTSCB), aiming to develop world-leading stem cell technologies and to apply them to regenerative medicine, organ transplantation, and genomic medicine.
