5.2 Cellular and gene therapies

Discovery and development of cellular, tissue and gene therapies including

  • gene therapy, stem cells therapy, in vitro fertilisation and tissue engineering
  • development of delivery systems
  • development of culture systems
  • testing in in vitro and in vivo model systems

This code is suitable for studies involving in vivo stem cell research particularly tissue regeneration or repair of damaged tissue and generation of stem cell lines.

Cell therapy studies involve a transplantation process but they should not be coded as 5.4 Surgery too.

Excludes basic developmental biology of stem cell fate which should be coded as 1.1 Biological
