Want to understand the fascinating world of stem cell science?

Watch our Communicating Research video series.

Dr Madison Paton and Dr Megan Finch-Edmondson explore the future possibilities for stem cell treatment and brain injuries, including cerebral palsy, stroke and many other conditions.

Stem cells may hold the key to treating brain injury and cerebral palsy, but years of rigorous experiments are needed to prove a treatment is safe and effective. Here, Dr Madison Paton and Dr Megan Finch-Edmondson explain how the research pipeline works.

CPA is proud to be a partner on PREMSTEM, a major research project funded by the European Union which seeks to develop a first of its kind cell therapy to treat brain injury in babies born too soon.

Dr Madison Paton, Researcher at CPA outlines stem cell types and how they can help repair the brain. 

This is the next step in the $150 million Stem Cell Therapies Mission, helping world-class Australian researchers further investigate new medical treatments for many chronic and inherited diseases.
