Spudich was involved in the establishment of a new Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine (inStem) on the campus of the National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS), a leading biological research institute in India with which he has had a longstanding affiliation. InStem is using a large spectrum of approaches to both basic research and its clinical application in the frontier areas of stem cell and regeneration biology. InStem is breaking down the walls of national borders as well as of scientific disciplines and traditional lab arrangements. In its new facility, groups of principal investigators and their interdisciplinary teams are sharing large, open lab areas that encourage collaboration. An advanced technology center provides technological capabilities that dramatically speed up as well as broaden the scope of the research.
