There are many institutions and colleges around the world that also help to conduct research, and many more websites with resources to answer all your questions. Some are federally funded and promoted, while others are funded through public efforts.
A few of these institutions conducting stem cell research are:
- Australian Stem Cell Centre – Through the use of biotechnology, academic researches help to create therapeutic products.
- Health Insite – Contains helpful resources.
- Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) – It is a federally funded agency that is responsible for much of the stem cell research in Canada.
- EuroStemCell – Comprised of eleven European academic institutes from eight different countries, they join together to compare and evaluate their findings.
- The Academy of Finland – Governmentally funded institute.
- Tekes—National Technology Agency of Finland – Publically funded institute.
