Il y a 60 ans, deux scientifiques canadiens ont prouvé l’existence des cellules souches, déclenchant ainsi le développement des greffes de moelle osseuse - un traitement vital dans la lutte contre le cancer.
60 years ago, 2 Canadian scientists proved the existence of stem cells, setting in motion the development of bone marrow transplants—a vital cancer treatment. With our most recent discoveries, Canada can continue to lead the fight against chronic disease for the next 60 years.
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.
