Stem Cell Biology

Stem cells are defined by the dual capacity to self-renew and to differentiate. These properties sustain homeostatic cell turnover in adult tissues and enable repair and regeneration throughout the lifetime of the organism. In contrast, pluripotent stem cells are generated in the laboratory from early embryos or by molecular reprogramming. They have the capacity to make any somatic cell type, including tissue stem cells.

Irish students debate science and ethics in DSI competition

Do the potential benefits of using embryonic stem cells to develop new medical treatments mean we have a moral obligation to support this type of research?  Should a patient’s potential contribution to society be taken into consideration when deciding who will be allocated a scarce resource such as an organ transplant?  Forty secondary school students from all corners of Ireland debate these thorny topics in the Debating Science Issues (DSI) competition

The All-Ireland Finals will take place on Friday, 22 February 2013 at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, Dublin. Funded by Discover Science & Engineering, Abbott Ireland, Boston Scientific and Pfizer, this All-Ireland project is coordinated by Danielle Nicholson, Outreach Officer at the Regenerative Medicine Institute (REMEDI) at NUI Galway in conjunction with 8 science research and discovery centres throughout Ireland- Alimentary Pharmabiotic Centre, UCC; Biomedical Diagnostics Institute, DCU; CRANN in Trinity College Dublin; Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI),  W5 in Belfast, CLARITY at UCD, Cork Institute of Technology and the Centre for Cross Border Studies in Armagh.

Regulation of stem cell research in the United Kingdom

Last updated:
1 Mar 2012
The UK has a comprehensive and well-established regulatory framework for stem cell research. Embryonic stem cell research is allowed subject to a licence from the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA).
