Knowledge mobilization (KM) focuses on creating and leveraging research outputs and establishing avenues for research exchange, research translation and awareness-building. It can enhance policy and decision-making, improve scientific and clinical trial design and foster science culture and awareness across both patient populations and the public at large. Overall, KM is integral to converting research investments into tangible health, social and economic benefits for Canadians.

Stem Cell Network investigators are internationally known for their important contributions to the stem cell field, including through the active dissemination, or knowledge mobilization of ethics and policy research for the benefit of society and science. Additionally, SCN’s KM activities focus on supporting outreach and education activities by communicating with the research community, raising the profiles of those within the Network, and sharing more broadly with Canadians the latest advances in stem cell and regenerative medicine research.

What are stem cells?

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.
