Wellcome-MRC Cambridge Stem Cell Institute
Supporting cutting-edge research
When it comes to stem cell research, the UK’s Wellcome-MRC Cambridge Stem Cell Institute is a world leader. To keep up the pioneering work, they need the very best equipment.
Our grant of £200,000 will contribute to a state-of-the-art confocal microscope. The new piece of kit offers ‘super-resolution microscopy’, which can give researchers previously unobserved details of biological structures and processes. This level of imaging leads to greater insight into how our cells behave and, ultimately, helps improve the way we diagnose, treat and prevent diseases.
- Our grant of £200,000 will contribute to a state-of-the-art confocal microscope.
- Many types of research rely on imaging to interpret changes in the way cells behave – including investigations into aging, injury, and cancers.
- 45 research groups will benefit from the Wellcome-MRC Cambridge Stem Cell Institute’s new
We also made a £10,000 contribution towards both scientific and non-scientific photographic artwork for the building, helping create an inspiring environment for both researchers and visitors.
