About the project


PREMSTEM is a €9M research project funded by the European Union’s prestigious Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. We are a group of researchers from across the globe developing a new regenerative stem cell therapy to repair the brain damage caused by premature birth, also known as encephalopathy of prematurity (EOP).

About PREMSTEM provides an in-depth understanding of the project and may be of most interest to researchers in the field, clinicians, and health care professionals.
