It was 1961 when Drs. James Till and Ernest McCulloch discovered stem cells at the Ontario Cancer Institute in Toronto, paving the way for the field of regenerative medicine. Now, almost 50 years later, that field is one of the most exciting areas of science and the McEwen Centre for Regenerative Medicine is helping push it forward.
The McEwen Centre continues to support the field of stem cell science, and one of the more exciting events they hold is Celebrate Science — a day-long annual event focused on raising awareness for the field. This year, Celebrate Science is being held on Thursday, September 23rd. To learn more about the McEwen Centre, visit their website. Meet the Centre’s researchers, read about the areas they are researching and find out how you can get involved.
