A newly published paper in the prominent science journal ‘Nature Methods’ revealed that human pluripotent stem cells have distinct functional and molecular features when generated through various methods. This discovery, realised by the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institutes (ARMI) Polo Group, offers a new comprehensive study in the field of stem cell research. The findings were led by PhD student Ethan Liu and senior Postdoc Christian Nefzger.

A discovery by Australian scientists promises to pave the way to producing replacement organs for damaged hearts, kidneys and bowels, using patients’ own stem cells.

The research, pioneered by a team of scientists led by Professor Peter Currie, Director of the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute at Monash University (Melbourne), could overcome the severe shortage of donor organs for transplants.

Finding the back gate to schizophrenia

Media Releases / 14 May 2017

The world’s top non-governmental funder of mental health research grants, The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation, based in the US, recently announced that Australian researcher Associate Professor James Bourne from the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute (ARMI), Monash University has been awarded a two year NARSAD Independent Investigator Grant., to study the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC), the brains control centre for cognitive function, and its connection with the nearby medial pulvinar when affected by schizophrenia.

Scientists at the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute (ARMI) at Monash University (Melbourne) have identified an important evolutionary innovation that gave rise to many land animals, from reptiles and birds to mammals, and including our own species.

Melbourne scientists have found the first direct evidence for a speculated stem-cell based mechanism of muscle repair, in work that could lead to longer, healthier lives for the elderly and muscular dystrophy sufferers.
