Cardiovascular Stem Cell Facility

Stem Cell Production Facility

The Innovation Centre Stem Cell Production Facility is a purpose-built PC2 facility equipped with the most advanced robotics technology to support the training and research of the scientific community and industry partners working in the field of stem cell and regenerative medicine.

The automated robotics platforms facilitate the reproducibility and large-scale production of stem cells from hundreds of patients, allowing researchers and clinicians to identify new therapies using personalised medicine.

Funded by the NSW Government, this high-tech hub includes stem cell production to better help scientists in their search for the fundamental reason why some people are more susceptible to certain diseases and not others, and why some patients respond well to medication and others do not.
