This is a time of great celebration for stem cell science. You already know that this year and next we are marking the 50th anniversary of the discovery of stem cells by Canadian scientists Jim Till and Ernest McCulloch.
But the icing on the cake—so to speak—is that today is also the 80th birthday of Jim Till.
Those who know him well always speak of the clarity of his thinking and that he is a man of principle. We’ve had the benefit of working closely with Dr. Till (he was a founding Board Member of the Foundation) and can attest to the strength of his character, his insight, and his generosity.
Jim, Happy birthday!
