Regenerative medicine firm Plasticell has appointed Dr Aaron Chuang as chief scientific officer.

Chuang joins from GlaxoSmithKline, where he served as research director at the regenerative medicine unit for over 18 years. Chuang initiated the first stem cell drug discovery programme at GSK in 2004 and was central in the firm's stem cell R&D.
