The Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute (ARMI) was established in 2006 to deliver on this medical research field’s promising work of harnessing the healing power of stem cells to unlock the body’s own potential to heal and regenerate damaged organs or tissues caused by disease, injury or genetic conditions. ARMI is one of the world’s largest regenerative medicine and stem cell research hubs in the world, based at the Clayton Campus of Monash University. Boasting 15 research groups studying a variety of regenerative approaches and is an integral component of Monash University’s Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences.
ARMl’s science focuses on delivering the next generation of discoveries in regenerative medicine, building on Monash University’s existing strengths in biomedical research, and the work of the University’s pioneers in IVF and stem cells, to attract global regenerative science leaders and a new generation of young and creative researchers; to inspire and lead discoveries and developments in this exciting new therapeutic field.
The Institute was established through a joint venture between Monash University and the Victorian Government with additional funding from the Australian Government. ARMI today acts as a focus for public engagement in regenerative medicine and is the source of advice for policy makers.
