About The Stem Cell AND Regenerative Medicine Consortium (SCRMC)
Traditional medicine is algorithm-based; drugs were largely discovered, not invented. Although many conventional therapeutic regimes prove to be effective, numerous incurable medical conditions remain and their treatments are palliative at best and not available at worst. Recent advances in the identification of various pluripotent and multipotent stem cell populations and biomedical sciences have enabled clinicians and researchers to pursue for the first time the revolutionary paradigm of Regenerative Medicine. The Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine Consortium (SCRMC) in the LKS Faculty of Medicine at HKU takes a multi-disciplinary approach by broadly integrating various existing unique strengths at HKU, novel medical concepts and state-of-the-art facilities to strategically focus on topics from basic stem cell biology to translational bench-to-bedside regenerative medicine. As a leading university, we promise to deliver significant academic, community and economic impacts, both regionally and internationally.
