Brief description This research program entitled Stem cells from the testis is designed to use cutting edge molecular and cellular biology techniques to isolate adult stem cells from the testis. These stem cells will be expanded in cell culture and tested for therapeutic activity in mouse models of infertility, leukaemia and kidney failure. The knowledge and techniques developed in the mouse system may help unlock the potential of human cell based therapies for these and other degenerative diseases.
