Progress reports from EU-funded stem cell projects

We've started a new content series that aims to inform European citizens about public-funded progress in stem cell research. As EU-funded stem cell projects report on their activities to the European Commission, we're inviting them to post a short, accessible progress report on this site too.

ESTOOLS, which was the largest consortium of researchers studying human embryonic stem (ES) cells in Europe, wrapped up in July 2010. We invited them to kick off this new series, by reporting on the work they did over four years to develop tools and knowledge for the industrial and medical applications of human ES and iPS cells.
