Last weekend, The Galway Independent newspaper, (Ireland) made mention of a new stem cell laboratory on the grounds of University College Hospital Galway which has been given the go ahead.

It was in early July that NUI Galway researchers announced that clinical trials of stem cells on heart disease patients could start collaboratively between NUI Galway and University College Hospital within two years subject to regulatory approval.

Researchers at the National University of Ireland Galway only now need the approval of the Irish Medicines Board (IMB) and a local ethics committee to go ahead with the trials in conjunction with doctors at Galway's University College Hospital.

The research will be the first of its type in Ireland.
