In line with the government’s mission to strengthen research activities and be more involved in the development of the nation and the region, the Centre is established to encourage all academic staff and graduate students to contribute towards a vibrant research culture and nation building.
The Centre aims to promote multi-disciplinary stem cell research activities leading to the advancement of knowledge on the mechanisms of cellular reprogramming and stem cell differentiation leading to the translation of basic research findings into clinical benefits and improvement in the quality of healthcare in Malaysia. The Centre also collaborates with the community, industry and the government to provide innovative solutions and to facilitate knowledge transfer.
