Regenerative Medicine Research Group

Research in Regenerative Medicine Program explores the essential aspects of stem cells that address the underlying mechanisms of cell renewal, tissue specific differentiation which govern to the developmental process. Stem cells are currently been investigated as a potential remedy for myriad kind of diseases that are ranging from genetically linked disorders, inflammatory diseases, cancers, injuries as well as aesthetic therapy. Our research program is aimed to investigate the basics of stem cells in normal and disease models of both animal and human systems which unravel the molecular and cellular mechanisms. Our research teammates are currently working with various types of stem cells which are derived from embryos, foetal tissues, perinatal and adult post-natal stem cells where it encompasses embryonic stem cell lines, haematopoietic stem cells, mesenchymal stem cells, cancer stem cells and organ-specific stem cells. The basic research that investigate the role of stem cells in immuno-neurological development and escalate the expansion of adult stem cells are ongoing to explore the fundamental aspects of stem cells. Similarly more applied studies such as harnessing the transplantation mediated immune rejection via mesenchymal stem cells; incorporating tissue engineering as one of the tool in bone mediated injuries and  establishing in-house stem cell bank that caters and stores stem cells for the future research are being pursued. The regenerative research group has the unique research capability where it relies on the diversity of research projects conducted within the field of stem cell as our group members come from multidiscipline background and expertise. Meanwhile, it provides an holistic approach that includes stem cells  from various developmental stages and amalgamate the basic fundamental studies with more applied research that would potentially bring the stem cells to a clinical prospective
