UCSD forms stem cell collaboration with major Australian centers

Scientists from the University of California, San Diego are joining forces with colleagues from Australia's Monash University and the Australian Stem Cell Centre to create a powerful new international collaboration in stem cell research. The collaboration was announced Monday, April 10 at the BIO 2006 conference in Chicago by Premier Steve Bracks and Minister for Innovation John Brumby of the state of Victoria, Australia.

"This historic initiative will cement Victoria as a global leader in stem cell research and allow our leading stem cell researchers to work alongside their Californian counterparts," said Bracks. "California is fast becoming the hub of stem cell research in the northern hemisphere and the memorandum of understanding between the UCSD and Australian Stem Cell Centre will result in two of the world's leading centres working together on future projects and discoveries."

"UC San Diego is committed to innovation, interdisciplinary scholarship and international outreach," said UCSD Chancellor Marye Anne Fox. "Through this agreement we will also strengthen the network of collaboration we are building throughout the Pacific Rim. This network will fuel the intellectual and economic engine that is driving California's steady rise as a world leader in science and technology."

"This collaboration is a potent initiative that will leverage the expertise of some of the most talented and experienced scientists in the field of regenerative medicine," said Brumby. "This collaboration will contribute toward developing the next generation of science leaders in both California and Victoria, and we are confident that, in time, new collaborations with Europe and Asia will emerge."

The collaboration will bring together more than 300 leading scientists, research trainees and staff in the regenerative medicine and stem cell science fields, and will provide an important springboard for expanded research collaborations between Victoria a
