The BHF Oxbridge Centre of Regenerative Medicine has been renewed for another four years (2017-2021) with PIs from Bristol, Cambridge, Leeds, Manchester, and Oxford. The final annual research symposium of the original Centre took place on Friday 29 September 2017 at the Royal Society.

This free event was well attended with researchers from the original and renewed Centre, as well as potential collaborators from Imperial College, Newcastle, and UCL. The BHF was represented by Profs Metin Avkiran and Jeremy Pearson, and Dr Greg Jones.
