About this Event

New century’s cell therapies targeting diabetes - an inaugural lecture by Professor Yuchun Gu

Professor in Molecular Physiology

Director of Regenerative Medicine Centre

Aston Medical School

Regenerative medicine is an interdisciplinary field that seeks to develop the science and tools that can help repair or replace damaged or diseased human cells or tissues to restore normal function, and holds the promise of revolutionising treatment in the 21st century.

Professor Yuchun Gu is a medically trained physiologist and is the director of the Regenerative Medicine Centre of Aston Medical School. In 2017, he was awarded a professor and chair in Molecular Physiology at Aston Medical School and has held the positions of Professor and Chair of Molecular Pharmacology at the Institute of Molecular Medicine, Peking University since 2010. Professor Gu’s expertise lies in cardiovascular disease, mitochondria biology and ion channel studies. More recently his research has also moved into the field of immune cell engineering and the clinical applications of stem cell therapy for a variety of degenerative diseases.

In this lecture, Professor Gu will discuss the scientific principles, the clinical cases and the industrial perspectives of regenerative medicine, mainly covering the most developed induced pluripotent stem cell (iPS) based therapies to treat cardiovascular diseases and diabetes.
