During these challenging and unprecedented times lifesaving medical research is more important than ever. We remain tirelessly committed to finding groundbreaking treatments for the nation’s many at-risk groups, whose debilitating illnesses and conditions we work to cure.

Right now researchers are repurposing their labs and their efforts towards Covid-19 relief.

The UK Stem Cell Foundation continues to be fully dedicated to advancing stem cell treatments and now more than ever we need your support to fund the vital clinical projects that will benefit humankind.

Together we can ensure the success of cell regeneration therapies and help ward off the devastating effects not only of hitherto incurable diseases but also of potential future pandemics.

Stay safe and stay well.
