One of the key mandates of the Foundation is to raise awareness about stem cell science. One way we do that is by working closely with organizations that are leading the science and transforming the lives of patients — and the McEwen Centre for Regenerative Medicine is a great case in point. Their annual “Celebrate Science” Day (which takes place on September 23rd) showcases the progress being made and the lives being changed. We think they’ve got it just right and are pleased to be working with them to extend the reach and impact of this event.
Based in Toronto’s Discovery District, the McEwen Centre is a world-renowned institution for stem cell research (read more in Collaborating for Cures). They also host some fantastic events.
We’re happy to lend our voice to “Celebrate Science” and present you with a chance to interact with some of the event’s speakers, such as the Director of the McEwen Centre for Regenerative Medicine Gordon Keller, and actress and activist Lisa Ray (Bollywood/Hollywood).
We’ll be posting updates on this event and others, news about research advancements and profiles of McEwen Centre projects on our blog throughout the month. Follow along and join us as we celebrate stem cell science and support this important research centre.
