Montreal event aims to separate stem cell myths from realities

Posted by

When it comes to stem cells and regenerative medicine, how can you tell the difference between fiction and reality?

Remarkable advances in stem cell research have led to sensational claims — especially from private clinics offering miraculous cures for a myriad of diseases.  But what’s the real story?

Our colleagues at CellCAN Regenerative Medicine and Cell Therapy Network hope to clear the air this week with an Information Day on Cell Therapy. The Thursday, Nov. 5th session at Montreal’s La Grande Place, complexe Desjardins – 150, Ste-Catherine West, runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with a panel discussion at noon.

CellCAN has developed an app for event participants to view to our Foundation’s Toward Treatments summaries of the state of stem cell research into 19 diseases.  You can find them here.

Organizers say the goal of the day is to distinguish “myths from the realities, and embrace the true potential of stem cells” so that “more Canadians benefit from this revolutionary medicine.”
