Scottish Stem Cell Network

Scotland has an outstanding reputation for scientific excellence, with its work in the life science field highly regarded world wide. In recognition of this, the Scottish Government has indentified the sector as a priority industry. Under the umbrella of life sciences, stem cell research is one of Scotland’s shining examples of academic distinction, as backed up by a recent Edinburgh Science Triangle (EST) market analysis

The country as a whole ranked 1st in the world for stem cell research based on citation impact in 2007 (ScienceWatch). In 2008 Scotland received a larger proportion of UK Clinical Medicine funding than London, Cambridge and Oxford - 7.4%>6.7%, 1.2%, 1.8% (Source: RAE). From 1997 – 2007, the University of Edinburgh was ranked 3rd in the world for Stem Cells based on citation impact (source: ScienceWatch) and the University of Glasgow ranked 4th in Europe for Clinical Medicine.
