You are hereOur Research
OptiStem combines basic research about stem cells with pre-clinical work and clinical trials. All these areas of research are vital if we want to understand how to use stem cells in the fight against disease.
We are investigating how stem cells could be used to treat degenerative diseases that damage skeletal muscle or epithelia such as skin or the surface of the eye.
The following sections of our website give lay summaries of our work along with more detailed, scientific information about our research. If you would like general information about stem cells, please visit EuroStemCell.org. OptiStem is an active partner of EuroStemCell and is committed to providing accessible information to European citizens about our science through our involvement in EuroStemCell's dedicated public engagement activities.
