Royan institute for Stem Cell Biology and Technology (RI-SCBT)
Royan Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Technology (RI-SCBT), formerly titled "Department of Stem Cells", was first established in 2002 to promote research on general stem cell biology in Iran.
Thereafter, the "Department of Stem Cells" expanded to eight main research groups conducting studies on embryonic and adult stem cell biology, neural, beta, and germ cell, transplantation, liver and proteomics.
Throughout the course of the studies our VISION has been to make stem cell research findings applicable in disease treatment to improve public health.
Therefore, today, the RI-SCBT is providing a comprehensive and coordinated "bench to bedside" approach to regenerative medicine, as well as a greater understanding of fundamental biology of stem cells, developmental biology, tissue engineering programs, development of translational research of stem cell therapeutics, and administration of new cell-therapy approaches that can restore tissue function to patients.
