The Foundation was set up to help address the critical gap in funding that is hindering the progress of promising stem cell research into new treatments.
We aim to do this by:
Since we were set up in 2005, we have helped over £24 million to be invested in stem cell research projects in the UK through a combination of fundraising, co-funding and collaboration
The Foundation exists to support late stage basic research and clinical trials that have the potential to treat intractable diseases and conditions where there is no current treatment.

Making a donation to the UKSCF couldn't be simpler.
You can donate regularly or make a one-off donation using a number of methods.

The UK Stem Cell Foundation focuses on funding late basic research projects, phase I and II clinical trials that contribute enabling technologies and/or translational research in stem cells that could ultimately lead to a phase III clinical trial endpoint.
The definition of 'enabling technology' or 'translational' research has been left open, as a range of studies could be defined under these terms, for example use of stem cells in animal models, expansion of cells or routes of delivery of stem cells.
