2016 saw yet another year of exceptional research excellence at the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute (ARMI). The number of papers published in leading journals with an impact factor of greater than 10, more than doubled in 2016.

The year was bolstered with new opportunities to commercialise research at the Institute, with the announcement of a global hub of commercialisation at ARMI, the Centre for Commercialisation of Regenerative Medicine Australia.

If you looked beyond the outstanding career of Dr Zita Unger as an evaluator, educator and entrepreneur, you would discover that she is a keen diver with extensive experience in the Pacific, Micronesia and Australian waters. For Dr Zita Unger, however, the exploring does not stop in the watery depths. When on dry land, Dr Unger investigates opportunities for ARMI.

Associate Professor Andrew Laslett’s Group at ARMI is focussed on investigating the biology of human pluripotent stem cell lines, including human ESC and iPSC. Thanks to the Laslett Group, the study and application of human embryonic stem cells has recently been advanced by the availability of new antibodies which can easily determine which cells in a cell population are pluripotent.

ARMI is proud to announce four researchers receiving awards so far in 2017 - Ben Cao, Hozana Castillo, Peter Currie and Ziad Julier. 

A discovery by Australian scientists promises to pave the way to producing replacement organs for damaged hearts, kidneys and bowels, using patients’ own stem cells.

The research, pioneered by a team of scientists led by Professor Peter Currie, Director of the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute at Monash University (Melbourne), could overcome the severe shortage of donor organs for transplants.
