Leading science, pioneering therapies

Work with us

The MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine is a world-leading research centre dedicated to stem cell research and the translation of this science into clinically relevant applications.

The MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine (CRM) is a world-class research facility located in the Edinburgh Bioquarter, adjacent to the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary (a 900-bed research hospital), the University of Edinburgh Medical School, and translational and commercial partners.

At the CRM, over 250 top-ranked research scientists develop new therapies, which can then be translated in its MRHA-accredited clinical grade cell manufacturing facility, presenting a perfect platform for building industrial collaborations. With regenerative medicine expertise ranging from basic stem cell research to understanding disease mechanisms and transplant surgery, we are the perfect partner to enhance your R&D efforts, product development, and commercial and clinical visibility.

Our Centre has a longstanding track record of positive engagement with industry. This includes the provision of expert advice on clinical trial design and specific disease contexts, the development of a range of current collaborative projects with pharmaceutical and biotech industry leaders, and the co-development or licensing of CRM-generated IP.

The CRM leads one of the  UK Regenerative Medicine Platform hubs (UKRMP), a £25M initiative that is addressing major translational challenges of regenerative medicine.  Projects within this UKRMP Niche Hub aim to gain a detailed understanding of the signalling and support pathways in the extracellular niche environment that supports stem/progenitor cells in health and disease, providing a basis for new regenerative medicine approaches.

Whether you are looking for a collaborative partner or an expert consultant, we will be delighted to help you find the perfect contact for your requirements. Email us on G.McLean@ed.ac.uk.
