PhD Success

Added 25 November, 2013

Congratulations to Melanie Georgiou who successfully passed her PhD viva on 28th October 2013. Mel's PhD thesis title is "Development of a tissue engineered implantable device for the surgical repair of the peripheral nervous system" and her work resulted in a number of publications and presentations as well as successful collaborations and an international award.

New Paper: Astrocyte response to stem cell therapies

Added 29 October, 2013

The paper "A 3D in vitro model reveals differences in the astrocyte response elicited by potential stem cell therapies for CNS injury" was published in Regenerative Medicine this week. It is freely available as an Open Access publication and reports a new use for the 3D astrocyte culture models we have developed previously. The astrocyte cultures were used to screen therapeutic cells in vitro, allowing cells likely to trigger an astrocyte response to be identified.
