Stem Cell Research Lab

Considered the “building blocks” of the body, stem cells are the body’s raw materials from which all other cells with specialized functions are generated. These powerful cells have the ability to heal as they can divide and create identical copies of themselves in order to repair and replace damaged tissues in the body. Researchers have only begun to scratch the surface of the therapeutic benefits of stem cells, and there is still much to learn about how stem cells  can be used as treatment for people living with a variety of illnesses.

We are raising $1 million to support the creation of the RI-MUHC’s Stem Cell Research Lab.
