Research at AKU-CRM is focusing on harnessing stem cell technologies to develop regionally (Pakistan and East Africa) relevant induced pluripotent stem cell lines. The aim is to understand the biology of diseases and use this knowledge to develop economically viable therapies and diagnostic kits​. The Centre has an integrated hub and spoke research programme with inter-linked specific subject areas in the following broader strands:​

  • biology of stem cells ​

  • stem cell niche 

  • stem cell diseases including cancer

  • ​tissue repair
