Stem cells, what are they? How were they discovered? How do they function? How are advances into this pioneering research impacting medicine both in the UK and on a global scale?

If you would like to know the answers to such questions, then you are invited to this inspirational event STEM CELL REVOLUTIONS to gain an insight this research and to discover the fundamental importance and potential of stem cells.

This event offers the opportunity to watch an international multi-award winning documentary created by film producer Amy Hardie and stem cell biologist Professor Clare Blackburn and presented in an understandable Horizon style format. The film features commentaries and case studies from experts in the field, including Nobel laureates Professor Shinya Yamanaka, Professor Sir John Gurdon, Professor Sir Martin Evans and other distinguished scientists such as Professor Ian Wilmut.

The film will be followed by a Q&A session with a panel of stem cell scientists from the Centre for Regenerative Medicine at Edinburgh University. This event will also offer the ideal platform to showcase stem cell research at Heriot-Watt and Edinburgh University and the opportunity to form collaborations.
