The North West Embryonic Stem Cell Centre (NWESCC) is a joint project between the Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (Prof Daniel Brison) and The University of Manchester (Prof Sue Kimber, Prof Mark Dunne and Prof Tim Hardingham); the Paterson Institute for Cancer Research (Prof Peter Stern); and the University of Liverpool (Prof David Edgar). The Centre is funded by £1.53m from the Northwest Regional Development Agency together with £0.5m from the Medical Research Council. This has supported the upgrade of IVF laboratories to Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) tissue banking standards and the establishment of a laboratory also accredited to GMP, where derivation, culture, and storage of hES cells takes place. The Centre is based on two sites: St Mary's Hospital (IVF laboratories) and the Core Technology Facility (CTF) at The University of Manchester (hES cell laboratory) which was opened in 2006.
