Overview

Pluripotent stem cell biology

Pluripotency is the capacity of single cells to generate all cell types of the animal. This cellular plasticity is the foundation of mammalian development. In the embryo pluripotency is short-lived, but in vitro pluripotent stem cells may be propagated without limit. Pluripotent stem cells may remain in a naive undifferentiated state while retaining the ability to differentiate into multiple cell lineages including the germline. Our aims are:

  1. to understand the conditions required to capture pluripotency from the early embryo;
  2. to define the regulatory network that confers broad developmental competence;
  3. to elucidate and take control of the mechanisms that direct alternative cell fates.

Collaboration with bioengineers, biophysicists, bioinformaticians and computational modellers is embedded in our research.  Our main interest is fundamental understanding. In addition, however, we aim to provide robust pluripotent stem cell platforms for biomedical applications and bioindustry.

 

Research Team

The Smith research group relocated to Exeter in September 2020. The team is jointly led by Senior Research Fellow and co-PI Dr Ge Guo.

Group members

  • Francesca Carlisle, experimental officer
  • Giuliano Stirparo, research fellow (bioinformatics; currently in Cambridge)
  • Ayaka Yanagida, research fellow (developmental biology)
  • Anish Dattani, research associate (molecular stem cell biology)
  • Tao Huang, research associate (molecular stem cell biology)
  • Dan Spindlow, research assistant (bioinformatics)
  • Arthur Radley, PhD student (computational biology, Cambridge)

We currently have openings for post-doctoral molecular biologists and embryologists to join the team.

 

Principal Investigator Profile

Austin Smith studied Biochemistry at the University of Oxford where he became fascinated by pluripotency. He pursued this interest in PhD studies with Prof Martin Hooper at the University of Edinburgh and post-doctoral research in Oxford with Prof John Heath.  Austin then joined the Centre for Genome Research in Edinburgh as a Group Leader. In 1995 he became Director of Centre which he transformed into the Institute for Stem Cell Research. In 2006 Austin moved to the University of Cambridge and was founding Director of the Cambridge Stem Cell Institute until 2016. In 2019 he took up the post of Director of the Living Systems Institute at the University of Exeter.

Research

Research interests

Pluripotent Stem Cell Biology
Our research focusses on understanding the developmental and molecular foundations of pluripotency in vivo and derivative pluripotent stem cell states in vitro. We seek to uncover the basic principles underlying pluripotent stem cell properties and apply this knowledge to control their generation, self-renewal and lineage commitment. To identify generic principles and expose species-specific adaptations we compare pluripotent cells from rodents, humans and other mammals. Our overarching goal is to recapitulate ex vivo the developmental trajectory from an emergent naïve population, through acquisition of multi-lineage competence, to lineage-specification.
