Rationale and Objectives of Revive Consortium

Major advancements in stem cell biology have paved the way for concerted research activities on the fundamental biology of stem cells and their applications in the clinic. The medical potential of stem cells will require the development of, and reinforcement of, studies ranging from those in vivo using a variety of model organisms, to cell-based therapies in the clinic. The principal objective of Revive is to unite academic and industrial Partners to consolidate and facilitate research on stem cells in the context of fundamental biology, disease, regenerative medicine and ageing.

LabEx:  Fundamental and Applied Research on Stem Cells

Public health impact of Revive

One central issue in regenerative medicine and the therapeutic uses of stem cells concerns the proper characterisation of stem cells in different tissues and organisms. Research activities based on identifying and maintaining robust stem cell activity are ongoing in the Revive consortium. Research activities are also centered on cellular reprogramming and the generation of induced pluripotent cells from patient derived material to address the underlying causes of a variety of diseases. These and other efforts aim to ensure the proper use and application of stem cells in the context of human health

Consortium partners

Consortium Partners - Revive

The Revive consortium unites fundamental and applied stem cell researchers with selected Partners from the biotechnology sector. This consortium is structured around a dedicated research programme on stem cells, disease, regenerative medicine and ageing. It is composed of 6 academic Partners (Institut Pasteur, INSERM, CNRS, INRA, UPMC-Paris VI, ENVA) representing 22 scientific and medical (Institut Cochin, Européen G. Pompidou and Pitié-Salpétrière Hospitals) research teams developing close interactions with selected biotech companies. The Consortium aims to foster technology transfer, training and ethical advances in stem cell science. The Revive Consortium acts in parallel to create an internal and privileged dynamic proper to the Consortium, whilst also creating informal or where appropriate formal links with other European and international Stem Cell Consortia.

Labex Revive Funding

« Programme Investissements d’avenir » (PIA)

The consortium Revive is a selected project of the ANR “Laboratoire d’Excellence” programme (2011 – 2019) with research activity on stem cells in regenerative biology and medicine.

Our aim is to advance fundamental and applied research on stem cell biology.
