SCN’s 2020 research funding competition is now open

In the early in 1960s Canadian researchers Drs. James Till and Ernest McCulloch first proved the existence of stem cells. Their seminal studies launched the international field of stem cell research. Since then Canadian researchers have built upon their work, developing a research enterprise that encompasses not only stem cell biology but also its application in the clinical setting, drug discovery and cell and tissue engineering.

SCN’s new speaker series, “Stem Cells from the Sofa,” is a virtual space to share scientific findings, insights and best practices related to stem cells and regenerative medicine. Presentations are broadcast live via webinar and include Q&A with the guest speaker. Pre-registration is required. Below is a list of upcoming talks and recordings of previous presentations on demand.
