STELLAR is a collaboration between European and Australian researchers and combines experts in the field of kidney development, regenerative medicine and kidney pathogenesis. This combined knowledge is crucial in unraveling the potential of kidney derived MSC to counteract the development of end stage renal disease.
Close collaborations in STELLAR have opened new avenues for other joint research projects. A shared interest of several STELLAR partners is the development of a bioengineered kidney.
Danielle Leuning, a PhD student on the STELLAR project was recently interviewed by a Dutch newspaper to explain all about this new exciting STELLAR spin-off.
