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.
Money raised to date
Stem Cell Research
The lab will help:
Enroll more patients in stem cell clinical trials
Reduce the number of patients who need to travel outside of the province or country for treatmentStep 2
Recruit the best talent to ensure that patients are benefitting from the latest stem cell research right here at home
