CAMBRIDGE, United KingdomóResearchers at Cambridge University have developed a method for generating liver cells from skin cells, and have now announced the formation of a new company to supply stem cell products for the drug discovery and regenerative medicine fields. The company, DefiniGEN, is based in Cambridge, and is based on research from Dr. Ludovic Vallier, Dr. Tamir Rashid and Prof. Roger Pedersen of the Anne McLaren Laboratory of Regenerative Medicine. Funding comes from a group led by Cambridge Enterprise, the university 's commercialization arm, and members of Cambridge Angels and Cambridge Capital Group.  
 
"This is a technology whose time has come. Cambridge has more expertise in the area of stem cells than perhaps anywhere else on earth, and now we are starting to see promising commercial opportunities which build on that expertise," said Marcus Yeo, CEO of DefiniGEN.
