Are Stem Cells the Future of Modern Medicine?
Ever wondered what stem cells really are? Why are they important in biomedical research? Which diseases could stem cell really cure? How close is this research to treating patients?
Patients on organ transplant lists, as well as those with diabetes and heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, MS, developmental deficiencies, and many others could benefit from stem cell research.
You are invited to join us for a lively debate on stem cell research.
Dr. Fabio Rossi, Canada Research Chair in Regenerative Medicine; Professor, Department of Medical Genetics.
Dr. Jackie Damen, Scientific Director of Contract Assay Services, STEMCELL Technologies.
Moderated by Dr. Frances Lock
