IKEA At Home with Life Sciences – or – the College at IKEA

Last Saturday some of us went to IKEA Braehead Glasgow for the exciting ‘at home with life sciences‘ outreach event. Most of the public not expecting us and the amount of people at IKEA made this event rather special and a lot of fun. Some of us went there as CeMi to talk about our work in bone

Video abstract for our recent bacteria bio-interfaces paper on Advanced Materials

A video abstract of our recent paper published on the journal Advanced Materials is now available on youtube. “Bacteria‐Based Materials for Stem Cell Engineering” reports our latest progress in our living biointerfaces line of research. Jake, Alex and the rest of the team utilise genetically modified non-pathogenic bacteria to control and direct stem cell biology!

Making stem cells feel at home

Stem cells can develop into many different cell types and allow our bodies to heal, such as when making new bone after a fracture. The immediate environment around them is highly specialised, it conveys both mechanical and chemical signals to the stem cells, and this has a big effect on their activity. They ‘decide’ what

Shortlisted! THE Awards 2018, Research Project of the Year: STEM category
