'Cells of Knowledge'- a short introduction to stem cell research. 

Co-production of DanStem and VIA University College, [Sci-Vi]

 

DanStem - Nordisk Foundation Centre for Stem Cell Biology was an international research centre workingfor basic stem cell and developmental biology. The aim was to address fundamental questions in stem cell and developmental biology with an overall aim to contribute to the development of new therapies for cancer and chronic diseases such as diabetes.

DanStem was active between the years 2011 and 2022 and had the initial overarching goal to raise the profile of stem cell research and technology and make Denmark a leading country in the pursuit of stem cell-based diabetes and cancer therapies. They worked to create a strong platform for utilizing pluripotent, somatic and cancer stem cells in synergistic efforts to understand development, homeostasis and disease in endocrine organs such as the pancreas, as well as cancer.  This resulted in a series of international group leader recruitments coupled with local, internationally recognized research groups.
