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
In Research, Training and Outreach
In Partner Support
More than 5,000 HQP have benefitted from SCN courses, workshops and travel awards. See what we’re offering in 2023.
Discover how SCN has leveraged funding in different regions of Canada and meet some of the people conducting the important research.
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.
