Remembering Andrew McKee

Statement on the Death of Mr. Andrew McKee, Chair of the Stem Cell Network Board of Directors

March 9, 2022, Ottawa, Ontario

It is with sadness and shock that we learned of the recent and unexpected passing of Andrew McKee. Andrew was Chair of SCN’s Board of Directors and a long-time friend and champion of the Network. He believed deeply in the important role of science for making our country stronger, and the world a better place for all. As Chair of SCN’s Board he brought his business acumen, leadership and strategy skills to the table for each meeting, and his passion, kindness and thoughtfulness to each interaction. He will be deeply missed. Andrew played a significant role in developing SCN’s future and we will always be indebted to him for his volunteer service and commitment.

On behalf of the Stem Cell Network’s Board of Directors, staff team and the larger Network community we would like to express our deepest condolences to his family, daughters, Maggie and Abbey, and his partner Shelagh.

Andrew was a bright light in the lives of many and will always be remembered.

Dr. Michael Rudnicki                                    Cate Murray
