About the Stem Cell Network
Building Canada’s stem cell and regenerative medicine (RM) research sector has been the raison d’être of the Stem Cell Network (SCN) since its inception in 2001.
SCN’s new Strategic Plan, IGNITE, provides the road map for Canadian research success in the stem cell and regenerative medicine sector.Learn more

Stem cells are our bodies’ building blocks. They are different from other cells because they have the potential to differentiate into any cell type and can renew themselves, which means they can heal blood, tissue and organs.

We are delighted to be hosting the Preclinical Experimental Design and Reporting Workshop today in Montreal! This important workshop sits at the intersection of fundamental #academicskills and #clinicaltranslation. @ManojLalu welcomed attendees and introduced the speakers.
And that’s a wrap for SCN’s #ECRSymposium2023! Thank you to everyone who attended, our speakers, panelists, workshop facilitators, as well as the ECR Committee & SCN staff for organizing the event!
This afternoon, attendees participate in a workshop focused on leading a productive and supportive team facilitated by Christine Miners & Melanie-Anne Atkins. #ECRSymposium2023 #leadership
"Collaborations have been key throughout my career. You need to know what you can bring to the table, but collaborators are key to focussing on the right research questions and not re-inventing the wheel," says @maxpaganelli during the panel discussion. #ECRSymposium2023
Next up, @maxpaganelli, @YYZscientist & @Vuphuongly participate in a panel discussion moderated by @chang_natasha on building meaningful #collaborations. #ECRSymposium2023
"Decide what type of lab you want to run & what you want to be known for. You can have impact right now, by mentoring & providing a system that will help people in your research group flourish," says Dr. Sara Vasconcelos in her keynote lecture at #ECRSymposium2023. @YYZscientist
On behalf of SCN’s Early Career Researcher Committee, Chair @AmyWongphd gives an overview of the activities for the day and invites attendees to introduce themselves at each table. #ECRSymposium2023
“One of the wonderful things about SCN is taking an idea through to execution, and that is what this day is about - delivering on our commitments to the Early Career Researcher committee," says SCN’S President & CEO @Cate_Murray1 in her opening remarks at the #ECRSymposium2023.
We’re thrilled to be kicking off SCN’s first Early Career Researcher Symposium happening today in Montreal! #ECRSymposium2023
