Centre for Regenerative Medicine


The Centre for Regenerative Medicine (CRM) is a research centre based at the University of Edinburgh's Institute for Regeneration and Repair.

Our Scientists and clinicians study stem cells, disease and tissue repair to advance human health. Research at the Centre is aimed at developing new treatments for major diseases including cancer, heart disease, liver failure, and degenerative diseases such as multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's.

The Centre is located in the Edinburgh BioQuarter, a site shared by the Royal Infirmary Hospital and the University's Clinical Research facilities. This makes us ideally placed to translate basic science into clinical therapies.
