University of Nottingham
(Dr.) Hoang Minh Duc is a stem cell researcher at Vinmec Research Institute of Stem Cell and Gene Technology (VRISG), a non-profit organisation conducting clinical trials using stem cell-based therapy for treatment of incurable diseases, including cerebral palsy, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, diabetes, stroke, spinal cord injury, and so on. Applying his UK studies, Duc has been successful in establishing core technologies that allow isolating, propagating, and cryopreserving mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) from bone marrow, adipose tissue, and umbilical cords. The core technologies provide Vinmec’s research team with an opportunity to establish the Vinmec Tissue Biobank, serving more than 7,000 customers.
Nine years of study in the UK from undergraduate to PhD had provided Duc with the unique experiences of a UK education.
