Stem Cell Centre funding

26th July 2006

26072006_stem_cell_research1.jpgThe medical research charity, The Wellcome Trust, has pledged £10m to establish a centre of excellence for stem cell research in the University of Cambridge.

The Medical Research Council and the Wolfson Foundation are also giving additional funding, each donating £1.5m. The funding comes at a time of growing unease in some parts of Europe around the European Union funding of stem cell research using human embryos, and in the US President Bush's refusal to allow federal funding for embryonic stem cell research.

The centre hopes to attract top scientific expertise to work on finding cures to a range of diseases including Parkinson's and diabetes.
